Welcome to an introduction to wood burning with artist Rachel Strauss. We are exploring the wonderful art of pyrography through the careful instruction of a maker with years of creative experience behind a pyrography soldering iron. This workshop explores how to use an advanced temperature-controlled tool to burn on substrates such as wood, leather, and cork. Our digital tutorial focuses on three key areas of wood burning: transferring techniques to move art to a surface, burning techniques to work with different tool tips to outline, fill & shade your art professionally, and finally finishing techniques to protect your work. The curated kit Rachel has designed starts us off by transferring one of Rachel’s unique designs onto an artisan-made basswood cheese board to create a custom piece for your next party.
