Upcycling

Upcycling is becoming a very popular choice for students and staff alike

The art of wood burning is actually called Pyrography – I now know Shaun will be very impressed with me for remembering that!

Pyrography or pyrogravure is the art of decorating wood or other materials with burn marks resulting from the controlled application of a heated object such as a poker. It is also known as pokerwork or wood burning. The term means “writing with fire”, from the Greek pur (fire) and graphos (writing)

Pyrography is just one of the amazing activities that have been undertaken in upcycling – just ask the children !
