Before there were electric wood burning tools there were magnifying glasses & sunshine. Pyrography (the art of burning wood) began in the 17th century, and became increasingly popular by the 19th century. and with the arrival of the 20th century and the invention of the electric pyrography machine, the craft became even more popular and accessible. And do you know why it's popular? Because it's awesome. The process and results equally....
Artist and pyrography enthusiast Melissa Quinn will patiently guide you through woodburning techniques using a magnifying glass and solar rays. Although the process is slow moving, it allows for some deep mediation space and unexpected results. You'll be amazed by the simplicity of this creative medium. Limited class size to 10.
