The Wood Burn Book: Your Essential Guide to the Art of Pyrography (Paperback)

£18.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

In The Wood Burn Book, Instagram star Rachel Strauss (@woodburncorner) teaches you everything you'll need to know to master your favorite new hobby: pyrography, or writing with fire.



This essential guide opens with a brief background to the art of wood burning, a list of tools and how to use them, basic techniques that can be used over and over again, and even what to burn and how to be safe doing it. You will also find a detailed explanation of the process from start to finish, with patterns and frames, techniques for lettering and adding color, as well as dozens of projects ready for gifting, including picture frames, cutting boards, coasters, cards, wooden spoons, and jewelry.



Above all, Strauss has created the book she wished she had when she first discovered pyrography: a simple guide that quickly gets the reader successfully burning. With the right tools and a little time, you'll be able to create meaningful handmade gifts without breaking the bank. Whether it's to create a family name sign as a housewarming gift for newlyweds, or customize baby blocks for a new little one, wood burning is the versatile hobby that can be used time and time again to create memorable gifts for all of life's occasions.



In addition, wood burning is a practice in mindfulness, requiring patience and focus to awaken the senses and calm the mind.



Mastering the art of writing with fire begins with the ability to follow a line. If you can trace, you can burn.

Rachel Strauss is the hands, heart, and mind behind Wood Burn Corner. Rachel found wood burning in 2011 while browsing her local craft store for DIY wedding decor. Its relaxing qualities and beautiful finished look had Rachel hooked. On Instagram (@woodburncorner) she hosts challenges to help wood burning artists from around the globe expand their skills, try new things, and connect with their fellow pyrographers. She started Burn Club, a place for wood burning artists of all skill levels to gather, share, learn, and grow together. Her artwork can be found on the packaging of the Walnut Hollow Creative Woodburner. Rachel is a featured teacher on Skillshare for her wood burning classes, and her work has graced the official Instagram feeds of Etsy, Joann, Craftsposure, and many others. She has also presented at both Altitude Summit and Pinners conferences. Wood Burn Corner reflects her love of creating, collaborating, supporting the wood burning community, teaching, and giving back. Rachel chooses to use wood from sustainable sources and donates to organizations that plant trees around the globe. She lives in Fremont, California.
