Beginners Festive Pyrography
This pyrography course is aimed at the complete beginner, everyone will leave with a small, completed piece on the day. As a beginner you will use drawings and carbon paper to transfer the picture to the item prior to burning. If students wanted to draw freehand that would also be acceptable.
Ideal for any crafter who would like to try something different or anyone who has an interest in pyrography.
Students would be required to bring with them a pyrography set which can be purchased from any local hobby stores. A simple kit with a minimal number of tips will be more than sufficient for the course. A kit with a 4* rating from Amazon is only £21.99 and comes with many extras. (Pyrography Pen and wood burning kit: Brand Tynegaly)
Some kits come with a small set of pliers, but if not then please bring a pair with you.
Tutor will supply a 4” coaster and hand sand blocks, carbon paper, pencils and lots of pictures to use.
Julie Clifton is completely self taught with regard to Pyrography with lots of practice and lots of watching YouTube. Out of the many crafts Julie has tried she does find Pyrography to be one of the most relaxing and calming of crafts. Often being so completely involved in a piece that she has gone for hours just working away with no thoughts other than to perfect the piece.
Julie does however have a very crafty background. Over the years has made and sold many different sorts of items in art gallery’s, at craft fairs, steam rally’s and flowers shows. These range from jewellery, to crystal animals and beaded trees and many others in between.
