What you'll do
In this unique class tailored to your interests, skills, and experience we will begin with a brief introduction to this artform via a tour of what I believe is one of the more unique collections of multiple media pyrographic art in the world. As we go I will share my reflections on the experiments that have brought me to this point and offer you a short demonstration of how pyrography is done on a work in progress. From there, we will shift to immersing you into this medium. I will listen to your interests, goals, and questions, get you started on a project of your choice that you will have sketched out in advance, and help you navigate the most difficult aspects and challenges involved in your project. Whether aspiring to try something new, to discover a new niche for your creative energy, or take your work to another level, I will offer you my undivided attention, insights, and lessons learned of 36 years, and the freedom to work at your own pace and take in what most inspired you to come. Whether you share this Experience with a friend or we work together one-on-one, we will use our time to sharpen your skills to enable you too to begin to create images like these.
Since my earliest encounters with woodburning, taking in its aromas, warm handsome tones and natural beauty, this exquisite artform has captivated me. Working with the unique aesthetic qualities of wood I've felt a deep spiritual connection with nature and a sense that there is a greater creative artistry evident in its fabric, a realization that adds both mystery and meaning to my art. For over 35 years since I gathered up some pieces for my first show, this remarkable medium has continued to enchant me and I've found equal joy in sharing what I do with my customers and students who too have been drawn to its beauty.
