Although there is a whole lot of great free content on this site, that is just a taste of what you can learn by working with me either personally or through my Online Burning Academy. Below you will find more information on what I offer as a teacher and mentor. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.


Personalized one year pyrography apprenticeship.    From $2,500
This one year option includes both online and live training, custom assistance in all aspects of pyrography, and a custom tailored curriculum based on your needs and desires. I only accept 3 students per year to allow the level of attention this training requires. If you are interested in this option please fill out a contact request form to set up a time to chat.

Personalized one on one Pyrography Sessions  –  From $97 per session
This on-demand option can be delivered either in person or online and is for one single session to cover one desired topic. If you are interested in this option please fill out a contact form to schedule.

Group Workshops  –  Scheduled
On occasion I will deliver group workshops for organizations. I book these one year in advance and require that all travel expenses are covered in addition to workshop fees. I only schedule 1-3 per year maximum and require minimum student attendance to be guaranteed.
