Arts and Crafts Pyrography

Available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and BAM

Lora S. Irish’s newest book, Arts and Crafts Pyrography, focuses on the wide variety of surface that you can use in your wood burning – leather, paper, gourds, fabric, and wood.

Although it is often referred to as woodburning, the art of pyrography can be worked on just about any natural surface, including gourds, leather, or cotton rag paper. Now Lora Irish, the author of the bestselling Great Book of Woodburning, offers thirty-five amazingly detailed new projects that explore the craft of pyrography across the full range of inventive pyro media.
