Learn Pyrography – Drawing with Fire

Create your own timber presentation board through the art of drawing with fire.

Join sculptor Lee Borthwick for a relaxing foray into the art of pyrography. Suitable for beginners, these workshops explore a range of drawing techniques and pattern making using the wood burning pen and English woods. We will look at the range of applications for pyrography, create tactile natural samples, and conclude by adorning your own beech presentation board suitable to take home.
