    Andi Wolfe, plant evolutionary biologist by day and internationally known turner, carver and pyrographer by night,  will be doing an all-day, hands on class on Saturday, May 18th.  

    The class will be limited to six students, and students must bring pyrography equipment to participate. See below for a list of the necessary equipment.

    Students will learn pyrography and coloring techniques by:

    1. doing a sampler board of pyrography textures;

    2. burning in a duplicate design on a plaque;

    3. coloring one design using prismacolor markers; and

    4. coloring the duplicate design using acrylic paints.

    Students must bring a pyrography burner and appropriate tips.  Andi says:

    Students should have a woodburning set-up (Detail Master or Burnmaster will be best), and pens with the following tips: 

    1.  a ball tip or writing tip such as the Colwood FT ball tip #2;

    2.  the equivalent of a Colwood FT DM11A (a spear-shaped tip) or a Colwood FT-MR (a knife blade shaped tip; and,

    3.  a spoon shader, such as the Colwood FT-SP.

    If you want to attend but are not able to provide this equipment contact Harvey Rogers at before you register to see if we can arrange for someone to loan you this equipment.
