Beginners Wood Burning Art Class (Pyrography)

July 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Main Photo For the Intro To Wood Burning Class

Commit your drawing to wood at this beginners wood burning art class. Start by outlining an image to a slab of wood then shading it in with heat, watch the wood turn to charcoal right in front of you.  Use this technique to create anything from signs to landscapes. All materials and tools that you need will be provided and you will be leaving with your very own creation!

Learn how a hot iron can be used in different ways to create a variety of shades and designs. While this is a beginners wood burning art class, feel free to put your own twist on it or look up techniques beforehand to test out.

Can’t draw? No worries! Premade templates and sketches will be available for you to use as a guide. Just make sure you remember how to color inside the lines!



Q: What age is this class for?

A: Due to the potential danger of the tools that will be in use we are limiting this class to ages 13+ with anyone under 18 to be accompanied by an adult.  

Q: Is it messy?

A: Not at all!

Q: Can I pay at the door?

A: Due to the popularity of our classes we can only accommodate tickets purchased up to 12 hours prior to a class.  This allows us enough time to set up
