Pyrography is the free handed art of decorating wood or other materials with burn marks resulting from the controlled application of a heated object. The term means "writing with fire" and dates from the 17th century. Pyrography is popular among crafters and artists, where designs are burned onto the exterior of turned or manufactured objects as well as stand-alone art pictures.
Here at D.D.W.C. we have an active group of members who regularly practice at club meetings and discuss varying methods to achieve differing effects and finishes. The club has a variety of machines including 4 Peter Childs machines which are available for use by members or visitors at the meeting. We also have a wide variety of stamps, nibs and resources which are available to lend and are suitable for beginners and experts alike. If you are a complete novice or just want to share experiences with like-minded enthusiasts, you will be welcomed whole heartedly to this very friendly group.
