In this workshop, students will explore pyrography, the art of burning wood to create pictures and designs. A small group of students will be introduced to wood burning tools in a safe environment where they will have a lot of individual help and attention from the instructor. During the course of the workshop, students will learn basic mark-making techniques, strategies to transfer designs onto wood, and how to add color to their designs. Students will have the opportunity to create an original design to burn as a take-home project!
