Woodburning

Pyrography – The art of decorating wood or leather by burning a design on the surface with a heated tool.  Also called Wood Burning and means “writing with fire”.


Are you looking for a fascinating new hobby?  Can’t draw?  Not an artist?  Can’t draw a straight line with a ruler?  Don’t let this deter you.  You can have lots of fun discovering your “inner artist” by creating your own design or tracing your favourite picture.   It is not an expensive hobby, all you need is a wood burning kit, some clean pieces of wood and the power of your imagination!

Still not sure? You are welcome to come and talk to us or you can check out some of our work which is displayed in the cupboard in the Reception area and is for sale. Who knows, maybe this is the hobby that has eluded you.  If you have a special request, one of our many talented wood burners will be happy to oblige.

Our members are always ready to lend a hand in cutting wood for us to burn or letting us know where to obtain it from.
