Turners Retreat

Susan uses the Peter Child Artist Pyrography Machine. Now manufactured by the Robert Sorby Tool Company in Sheffield, it was originally designed by Roy Child over forty years ago. The hot wire pen is excellent for finely detailed work.

The Peter Child outfit is available in most countries from any Robert Sorby stockist. Within the UK Turners Retreat (Craft Supplies) in Harworth is the main distributor and retailer of the machine.

More information including pyrography techniques can still be found on the Peter Child web site.
