Hi. I was looking up some new hobby ideas on here and I’m surprised to see that you are missing a very important hobby on your listings.

It’s called pyrography, which is artwork burned into wood. I used to do this a few years ago but I have reluctantly sold my pyrography machine and the stylus chisels.The machine can be purchased for about £100.00 from most craft supplies and the technique is quite simple.

For example, you need a piece of quality plywood, preferably beech faced as it has a lighter face than most ply. Depending on the size of the picture you would like,(2ft 6inches x 2ft is about right). Fix carbon paper all over the face of the ply, covering every part.If your not really artistic enough to design a picture of your own then choose one from hundreds of art drawings or magazines etc. but remember to cover the whole of the carbon paper area by fitting the picture with tape over the top.Then with a ball point pen, draw over the outlines of your picture, pressing on to make sure that the ink from the carbon paper is transferred on to the ply.When this is done, remove the paper picture and the carbon paper from the ply and you should have your outline for burning into the plywood.

Once you have burned all of the picture on to the ply, you can colour it in with felt tip pens.Allow this to dry then apply two coats of high gloss varnish over the finished picture before framing.

You will be astounded by the results. I was.

I feel very strongly that the practice of hand french polishing has over the years obtained the reputation of being a process that should only be carried out by profesionals. In our opinion it can be carried out by anyone. All we need to try to do is ‘spread the word’. In an attempt to do so we now run 1 day french polishing courses for beginners and supply french polishing kits. I’d be thrilled to hear your comments. Regards,

Macrame! It’s the art of tying cord into various artistic patterns. Years ago, I used to make a lot of really neat rope hangers for potted plants. They’re very decorative and, if you want, you can sell them at flea markets, etc. Have fun!
