    Beginner pyrography

    Teacher:  Barbara Bellchambers   bellcham@nexicom.net    

    Monday, November 25, 2019.     10:30 am to 3:30 pm                                            

    ACP Members price - $30

    Non-Members price - $40

    Are you looking for a way to enhance your gourd or wooden bowls?  Come and learn how adding simple designs with pyrography will add value and appeal to the most basic bowl.  You will burn a sampler design inside a border on your bowl, learning while burning what the different tips can do.

    The Instructor will provide a tutorial with pattern ideas.

    Students will need to bring a prepared gourd or wooden bowl as well as any pyrography equipment they have.  Please let me know in advance if you need to borrow equipment, so I can have enough equipment available.  Although you may not be able to complete all the burning during class time depending on the size of your bowl, you will go away with a tutorial which will help you finish on your own.  

    Gourders:  You may finish the inside of your bowl, but do not put a finish on the outside of the gourd.

    Wood turners:  You can mark a 2" (or larger depending on the size of your bowl) border situated an inch or so below your bowl's rim while turning.  Please do not put a finish on the outside of your bowl until after you finish the burning.
