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 firstname.lastname@example.org before you register to see if we can arrange for someone to loan you this equipment.
