I'm Maria from Designs by Poly, and I have several years of experience in "pyrography" - the art of burning designs into wood. All my boards are food-safe and perfect for gifts!
Join me for my “Wood Burning” classes where I teach you how to burn and design your own cheeseboard or keyring holder. My studio is based in Kogarah, but I'm also happy to travel for private classes.
