      Hi Janis,

      I offer periodic online courses of different lengths and focusing on different subjects. They include detailed videos, patterns, workbooks and weekly critique and one on one guidance. I will be rolling out a Masterclass toward the end of August and will open up my Pyrography Intensive Class sometime in September/October. If you are on my mailing list you will receive invitations to view the course and to apply. To get on my list (and get access to my Free Burning Basics Video Series simply go to http://www.FreeBurningVideos.com. Hope this answers your question. If not, feel free to contact me in the tab above for a more personal conversation.

      Basswood, Birch, Aspen, Italian Poplar, are all good.

    Do you have any tips on where to purchase wood rounds that are 12″, 15″ and 18″ in diameter? All I can find is pine which are strips that are glued together. They are very grainy, sappy and extremely hard to burn on.

    I love your instructional videos! I purchased a few of your patterns and your hummingbird master class. I am still working on a pine piece, which seems to be taking forever. Then I’m planning on doing the hummingbird!!!

      I purchase my wood at carving shows when they come to town. Sometimes the craft stores will carry basswood rounds.
