In this workshop you'll craft a custom wood cutting board using the art of pyrography-- don’t worry, it’s nothing illegal!
You’ll learn the basic techniques of decorative wood burning, which, although dating back centuries, can be expressed with fun, contemporary designs. Using a pen-like burning tool, you’ll work on small wood pieces to practice the basic technique.
Next you’ll move on to your masterpiece, etching a custom design onto a 13.5”x7.5” premium wood board that you can use for general food chopping or serving.
All supplies and equipment provided.
Note: If a date is sold out, join the waitlist to be contacted when a spot opens up.
