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 (templates provided) onto a 13.5”x7.5” premium wood board that you can use for general food chopping or serving. All supplies and equipment provided.
Unless otherwise noted, workshops are for those 16 years of age or over.
