Have you got an itch that traditional art just can’t scratch anymore? Are you looking for something risky yet rewarding? Pyrography is a sure fire way to get your embers for making rekindled!

Pyrography is the art of burning wood. Generations before us would use red hot pokers stoked in a stove or fireplace to burn rough works, which would surely have led to a singed eyebrow or two. Luckily, todays tools are much more refined.

This workshop explores the basics of pyrography, which includes:
- What equipment you can use
- How to choose a quality wood
- Key safety tips
- Different nibs and their uses
- Burning techniques
- How to finish your work so your wood lasts!

This small group workshop is designed to stoke the joy of art making, and to learn the ins and outs of a medium that is not so traditional anymore!

Knowledge required
What you'll get
  • Your beautiful work of pyrography art, ready for display!
  • Complimentary tea/coffee and nibbles.
  • All inclusive.
What to bring
An inspiration image of something you’d like to try your hand at recreating. It could be a photo of your pet, a piece of text, a portrait of a family member - anything that brings you happiness!

Welcome to Salty Soul Creative Studio, a space dedicated to experimentation and the rediscovering all of our creative abilities.

I can’t recommend Bas and her workshops enough Bas is such a caring, informative and creative teacher. She is warm, so helpful and very knowledgeable about wood burning. She is very attentive and was always offering suggestions to help me get the result I wanted. There were so many different wood options available to place our designs on. There was a platter provided. The working space is warm and inviting and has plenty of gorgeous examples of wood burning work. You should totally do this workshop! I’m going to want to do another one!

Just what I needed to get started on my wood burning journey. Basia was a wealth of knowledge but it was balanced with practical hands on practise. She was able to work with each participant where their area of need was.

Bas was a great teacher for 2 very unartistic novices, very patient and encouraging. We are so thrilled with our artwork. It was booked as a surprise experience for our 5th wedding anniversary (wood) and exceeded expectations

I attended a wood burning workshop on Fri, 6th October & thoroughly enjoyed it. The host/teacher (sorry I can't remember her name) was amazing - she taught us so much, was patient & encouraging & gave us lots of information before & during the workshop. She gave us printed images & instructions to take home & told us where we could buy the equipment/wood (& which types of wood are best) if we were keen to continue wood burning at home. She also gave us detailed safety instructions. I would definitely recommend the workshop & tutor to anyone thinking of trying this fabulous art form.

The workshop was really great. Bas made the experience so enjoyable and she really went above and beyond. I left with a piece of artwork that I still can't believe I made!

Trevor Hathaway Aug 2023

I had a great time at this workshop. Bas is extremely talented and a very good instructor. She covered all aspects of pyrography - safety, burning techniques etc before I started my project.

The workshop and the artwork I created exceeded my expectations. So impressed, I've purchased my own burner so I can further explore this medium.

I highly recommend this workshop for anyone interested in trying this art form

What an excellent class! The teacher was friendly and knowledgeable, she helped us all feel very comfortable and confident with creating our first piece. The materials and tools we used were great and she walked us through how to use them and how to source them outside of class too if we wanted to continue.

The workshop itself was in a very comfortable room, easy to access and good directions. Loved the examples of artwork she showed us too, it was very inspiring!

This workshop would be excellent from absolute beginners up to experienced people who want to try different techniques. Even if you feel you aren't creative, she helps you through the image, and encourages you to add your own personality to your artwork.

Give this one a go, you won't be disappointed!
