Art and other creative things by Helen Melhuish

Pyrography

I took up the art of pyrography ("writing with fire") in 2012. It instantly fascinated me. It's an art that takes a lot of practice and patience - there is not much room (if any!) for error. I work on a wide variety of woods and, more recently, leather. I occasionally attend craft fairs with my pyrography work, have completed many commissions and sell online and in local shops.
