Drawing with Fire: Hands-On Intro to Pyrography (Woodburning)

Burn Your Wood Project!
Learn the basics of woodburning in a class on April 4th:
Drawing with Fire: Hands-On Intro to Pyrography (Woodburning) 
Woodburning Class 

April 4, 2015, 9:30am 5:00pm, Klingspor’s Woodworking Shop (Asheville) Cost: $85 (includes materials) 

In this class, you will learn basic pyrography (woodburning) techniques to add interest to your wood projects. This is not woodburning like you may have learned in scouts. Instead, it is very detailed like a pen and ink drawing, yet easy to learn. If you can trace lines, you can create a drawing. In this class you will learn safety, how to use the three basic pens, and then create your first pyrographic masterpiece on a basswood blank.
Class size is limited to 8 students. Bring your enthusiasm, variable temperature woodburning equipment and pens (some equipment is available for loan on a first-come basis), and a pencil/pen.

Register at the Klingspor store. Hurry, class size is limited!
