Jan came to Canada in 1950 from the Netherlands. He started chipcarving on his own in 1972 on and off. In 1989, he got involved with the Bowmanville Wood Chips Club, and there was no looking back.
Jan teaches woodcarving classes several days a week in fall and winter. If you would like to sign-up for a class or get in touch with Jan, please use the info below to contact him.
Pyrography for Sale by Michael Soares
Hi my name is Michael, I started woodburning when I was in school when my grade 12 art teacher challenged me to try woodburning. After I graduated, I got a job but still continue to woodburn for a hobby and I don't think I'm going to stop, it's so cool to just imprint an image on wood.
We're incredibly proud of Michael and the wonderful work he has done and can't wait to see more.
Prices for the woodburnings above:
Dragon/clouds - $50, Ghost Rider - $50, Halo / Master Chief - $30, Tribal Dragon - $50, Spiderman - $30,
