Make. North Docks: Introduction to Pyrography
Venue: Make Liverpool
Times: 12:00 - 17:00
Do you have a burning passion to personalise with pyrography? If you’re terrified of fire or even a professional pyromaniac you will be in safe hands with Paula our pyrography specialist.
For those who are unfamiliar pyrography is the art of decorating wood by burning the surface using a controlled heated element.
In this class you will have to opportunity to work with hot pyrography tools and use a variety of the different tips, which produce a range of unique effects. There will be time during the class to practise your new skills on scrap wood before beginning your main piece, which you will be taking home. There will be 3 templates to choose from which have been specifically designed for beginner pyrographers, but if you’re confident and want to let your artistic side out, there will be the option to create your own design. Once everyone has completed their designs, Paula will also demonstrate the additional effects to improve any pyrography project like wooden stains and paints.
This class will provide all the tools and materials on the day, with complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits. You will leave with your completed project on a piece of A5/A4 sized wood, and the essential skills to continue and develop your pyrographic style. The decorative possibilities once mastered are practically endless!
