Pyrography Intro Class (Woodburning)

Learn the basics of woodburning in a class

Asheville store: August 26th 9:30am - 5pm

Hickory store: September 30th 9:30am - 5pm

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 basic pens, and then follow along with Michele to create your first pyrographic masterpiece on a basswood blank.

Class size is limited to 10 students. Bring your enthusiasm, variable temperature woodburning equipment and pens (some equipment is available for loan on a first-come basis; request at registration), and a pencil/pen.

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

Instructor: Michele Parsons, frequent author for Fox Chapel Publishing's Pyrography magazine and pyrography instructor for the International Woodcarving Congress, Fox Chapel Publishing Open House, and Southeastern Woodcarving School.

Old Salem Klingspor Tour Photos

On January 24th, management and store managers of Klingspor's Woodworking Shop visited  Old Salem and the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts. Below are some photos of the visit.

Brian Coe (right) of the Old Salem staff  talks with the group about Old Salem's collection of pre-Civil 
War workbenches.  In foreground is the inspiration for the currently-popular Moravian Workbench.  
These benches are not regularly on display at the Museum.

Tour participants were able to get good views of the underside of benches on storage racks.  
At right Coleman Fourshee of Klingspor's Woodworking Shop photographs a german style bench.

Coleman Fourshee (rt) of Klingspor's Woodworking Shop pulls out a drawer of the 
Leinbach bench as Paul Rolfe also of Klingspor looks on.  The Leinbach bench was 
used by several generations of cabinetmakers in the Leinbach family and was made prior to 1833.

Daniel K. Ackermann, Curator of MESDA Collections, points out construction 
details of a drawer from the Kentucky chest on frame at right.

Robert Leath, Chief Curator and Vice President of collections and research at Old Salem, talks 
with the group about some of his favorite pieces in the collection.

In the Old Salem Joiner’s Shop Nat Norwood, Director of Historic Trades, shows tour group a supply of examples of old nails. The type of nail used can often be helpful in dating a piece of furniture or a modification.
