Get out your burner… and join us for an interactive online class to kickstart your pyrography decorative wood burning skills!
We’ll talk tools, tips, wood, and safety and together practice various mark making techniques using the straight and rounded tips. No previous experience necessary!
Assembly Online Jumpstart Classes are designed for beginners to build confidence with new crafting tools and techniques, all from the comfort of their kitchen table (which doesn’t have to be located in Portland!). It’s the kick in the pants needed to get out those new supplies, plug it in, and give it a try!
Follow along and ask questions in real time with instruction and demonstration from our talented Teaching Artists via the Zoom video platform. You’ll log off with the inspiration to get started on your next project!
