Meet Your Instructor

Kimberly Glover
I had been a woodworker for more than 20 years when I began woodturning. Turning quickly led to carving, piercing, coloring, and pyrography. At the time, there weren’t many people teaching pyrography, so I began teaching at clubs and symposia to introduce others to “writing with fire”.

Drawing with Fire

Pyrography can be done on a multitude of media making this beginners class perfect for woodworkers and non-woodworkers!

Some of the things we will cover over the weekend:

  • Considerations when designing a piece
  • Ways to control the heat
  • How to use multiple nibs for different results
  • How to make custom nibs
  • Tricks to get great results and have fun doing it

You’ll learn not only how to work with your pyrography burner, but also put what you learn into practice.  There are multiple hands-on practice sessions and some of the items you’ll get to work on include:

  • Sample boards
  • Bookmarks
  • Rustic ornaments
  • Plaques

Each of these projects is designed to help you practice and refine a new skill or aspect of drawing with fire.

Tools and Materials you’ll need:

  • Small brass brush (Harbor Freight, Lowe’s, Home Depot)
  • Pattern tracing stylus (homemade or purchased)
  • A good-sized eraser (soft, white artist, not pink pearl)
  • Colouring tools (pencils, crayons, markers, watercolours, etc.)

The School will provide burners and carvers but if you would like to purchase your own or bring your own feel free to do so.  We recommend:
