Definition of Pyrography:
The art or process of producing designs or pictures (as on wood, paper or leather) by burning or scorching with hot instruments.
Pyrography is a fascinating form of art originating in ancient times, maybe back to the cave age, and is an interesting and rewarding way to be creative using various wood burning techniques.
Here at the Albury Wodonga Woodcrafters Workshop we have a dedicated group of Pyrographers attending sessions every Saturday morning between 9 and 12. We would welcome any newcomers who would like to “have a go” at this amazing hobby. We do have club burners, and books on the subject, as well as our friendly “knowledge” to help you make a start.
June has been a great busy month. We had a very successful morning for both of the Open Days, firstly at the workshop followed by the Saturday at the cottage. We had lots of interest and at least one very genuine couple wanting to join our group, in fact Maurice and Fran turned up at the door of the workshop waiting for us the following Saturday morning, and were very keen to have a try out which was very promising, and they have promised to return. On that Saturday we also had a social” Soup” lunch together which we all enjoyed very much. Our group is expanding and we had 10 of us all doing Pyro, the biggest group that we have seen, so we are very happy with that, and this also shows the need for another Pyro machine as we had to lend our own equipment and so were unable to do our own work.
Good luck! Cosette and Stefan
