    Come join Jordan Whyte for an exciting afternoon exploring the gorgeous Lichtenberg effect! Learn how to harness high voltage electricity to produce your own fractal designs on wood in this spectacular presentation!

    The use of alternative wood working techniques through Pyrography has been part of backyard, home hobbyists shops for years. Traditionally, Pyrography in wood working has been restricted to hand held wood burning tools. The use of high voltage Pyrography to create fractal patterns (know as Lichtenberg figures) has become increasingly popular around the world.  However, this process isn't without hazard and must be done in a safe and controlled environment. This is a process that must be done with the upmost of care, however, the results are amazing.

    This course will consist of: 

    • showcasing the equipment to produce Lichtenberg fractal patterns

    • critical safety procedures to ensure proper procedures

    • illustrating explicitly the tools & techniques used to provide proper electrical  conductivity to the working surface.

    • providing interactive high voltage demonstrations at specific power and voltage levels to illustrate the affect each has on the wood burning process

    • post processing of wood to allow for the addition of Epoxy and pigments

    We will be using the following power supplies. 

    • High frequency 30 kV - 10mA power supply running off a 24V DC 300 watt source.
    • Traditional AC iron-core, Neon sign, MOT and PT units ( for large scale high power)

    Course costs include all materials and the loan of safety equipment. 

    Free parking is available during the course in lot P7.

    Due to the dangerous nature of high voltage electricity this event is only available to members who are 18+
