Evening

Those that have a burning desire to do something a bit different will love Pyrography. Writing with fire needn’t be as scary as it sounds, as artist and illustrator Maika will take you through the steps on the basics of wood burning. The class will teach you how to draw your own designs freehand, or simply using the different shaped iron tips with ease, ready to start your journey into Pyrography! You’ll be encouraged to test your creativity with plenty of wood samples, and you will head home with a choice of two coasters, key ring or wooden spoon/spatula as well as your new skills!

Whether you’re a seasoned pyro looking to get together with a group of like minded people or just wanting to learn how to burn, there’s something for all abilities.

You will head home with a choice three items including a coaster, key ring or wooden spoon/spatula as well as your new skills!

Having never done Pyrography before, Maika was able to teach the art very simply and was always on hand whenever I needed help. The venue was great and Maika created a calm and enjoyable atmosphere. I would definitely go again!

Maika's course is absolutely fantastic and it makes for a exciting evening with friends or if you want to attend on your own. From learning about word burning techniques, to then applying it across all the materials was amazing and i cannot recommend it highly enough. I'm not the most artistic, but Maika makes you feel super comfortable and spends great time teaching you everything that you need to know. Coming away with my own personally designed spoons and coasters is also pretty cool. For anyone who is wanting to give this a go, i would say BOOK IT!!! It is a fun evening out and many laughs were had by all.

Having never done wood burning before I arrived not knowing what to expect - but Maika was so welcoming and friendly, explained really clearly the technique and showed us some examples. It was a small group, which was great as it meant you could chat to everyone and Maika was always on hand to help. I really enjoyed the session - not quite up to Maika's standards but it was so much fun, definitely recommend to anyone!

It was really fun learning the techniques for wood burning. It isn't something I had heard of before so was really intrigued by it. Maika was really nice and supportive throughout the class. I'm not very arty but by the end of it I was really proud of what I had created. I would defintely recommend this class if you are looking for something different and unique.

The class with Maika is a fantastic introductory to wood burning! Maika is really talented and on hand to help with what you’re looking to create with your own designs. It was great to start by testing the pyography pen and getting to grips with the technique!! The workshop is perfect to get creative, to switch off, and create something amazing and unique to take home! Thanks Maika!

This workshop is excellent! I would recommend this to all ages and to all abilities. Maika is a great teacher, very professional yet so friendly and kind. It’s a ‘must do’ for a fun activity on a week day!

I came in as a complete beginner to wood burning and had a brilliant time. I brought a friend for her birthday and we both thoroughly enjoyed it, she said it was a great present. Maika was lovely, patient, great at explaining everything and offered loads of creative inspiration. We came away with some lovely made items after having a good practise. I'd definitely come again! Thanks Maika xx

This class was a great opportunity to hang out with friends and try something new, and in Brixton which was super convenient for food and a beer after. Maika was great at showing us the ropes of wood burning and how to create some cool effects. I came away with some jazzy personalised spoons and a key ring. I'd definitely reccomend this class to anyone (creative or otherwise)

Such a great experience! Maika was a wonderful teacher (she's so lovely!), her talent in Pyrography is so impressive and it was really interesting learning how to draw with fire! Being able to come home with three items that you've made in the two hours was really great. I loved the location of the workshop, Studio 73 in Brixton village, as you are right in the mix of buzzy night life but getting to do something fun and creative at the same time. Was the perfect evening after work and the timings are ideal (7pm-9pm) for some dinner and a drink before or/ and a drink after! Thank you Studio 73 and MadeByMaika :)

I loved the workshop and haven't stopped telling everyone about it. Maika was lovely, supporting and guiding us when needed and then leaving us to it was perfect. It was very peaceful and enjoyable and the 2 hours flew by! The space was lovely too, intimate workshop with a really nice atmosphere. The best thing is, you get to take home something you're proud of making to show off to every person you know.

The wood burning workshop with Maika was such a great way to spend an evening! Maika created a welcoming and fun atmosphere and was an encouraging and warm teacher. From absolute beginner Maika provided guidance and inspiration and it was wonderful to walk away with 3 items I was proud to have made. The studio was lovely and the location was perfect for getting dinner before and a drink after - highly recommend!
