Pyrography Course

Important: if you or anyone in your household has a high temperature or a new and continuous cough, even if it's mild, you should stay at home.

Enter the world of pyrography at Turners Retreat!

Held at our store in Harworth, near Doncaster, this is a one-day hands on course with our pyrography tutor, Kez Halliday (Instagram: @spiritandbear). This course is suitable for beginners wishing to have a safe and enjoyable introduction into a new hobby, but with the ability to tailor the course to help you advance from a novice to a more experienced pyrographer.

Learn how to setup tools safely and master essential techniques such as texturing, shading and finishing to add a personal touch to a range of decorative items. You will have the opportunity to use different points on a hot wire machine to find which ones work best for you. Plus, at the end of the course, you get to take your work of art home with you!
