No skill level required! You can be an ultimate beginner or a pyro master - or anywhere inbetween - and still feel the magic of this wood burning retreat.


CAN I GO TOGETHER WITH A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER?

It's better with friends! We certainly encourage you to bring a friend or family member. Let us know you are coming together and we will do our best to help you lodge in the same room.


DO I NEED TO FIND MY OWN LODGING?

Not at all!

You will get 3 incredible nights with all-inclusive sleeping arrangements.


DO I NEED TO PROVIDE MY OWN FOOD?

We will provide...

  • continental breakfasts,
  • catered and dine-in lunches,
  • snacks
  • beverages like bottled water, coffee, tea, and juice, and
  • one group dinner on the final night.

We discovered that our guests appreciate a change of subject after a full day of burning. 

You will be responsible for your own dinner on Thursday and Friday, which allows you to take a break from burning and gives you the opportunity to explore Flagstaff and/or enjoy some down time.


WHAT IF I HAVE DIETARY RESTRICTIONS?

While we strive to accomodate dietary restrictions and allergies, we cannot guarantee every meal will fit every diet.

We will have a refrigerator where you can store any food that you may need to bring.


DO I NEED TO PROVIDE MY OWN TRANSPORTATION?

Flights and transportation to and from the woodburning retreat are not provided. We recommend hiring a car - taxi, uber, lyft - and encourage you to share a ride with your fellow retreaters to get yourself to and from the retreat before, after, and for your own dinners.


WILL YOU BE TEACHING BUSINESS AND SOCIAL MEDIA CLASSES?

No. This Burn Savvy wood burning retreat is project focused - meaning we are giving you a rich, hands-on experience with burning a unique pyrography project that you can't get in other events.


WHAT KIND OF PROJECT WILL WE BE BURNING?

We will be burning a landscape together! There will be options for you to choose from and of course you are welcome to burn your own design if you choose.

You will also get to select your piece from a variety of wood!


WHY GO ON A WOOD BURNING RETREAT?

In this world of hustle, bustle and isolation, experiences like the Burn Savvy Wood Burning Retreat are rare and worth the investment.

Here, you get to escape the daily grind and relax with like-minded artists and crafters in the beautiful mountain town of Flagstaff in northern Arizona.

You will explore woodburning techniques, try new things, and go home with a wood burning project that you can proudly hang on the wall or place on the mantle.

You will also gain new friendships and lifelong memories.

And since pyrography is so different from any other art form, it will be nice to craft with your fellow pyros who know and understand your struggles and your successes with wood burning.


WHAT BRAND OF WOODBURNING PENS WILL BE AT THE RETREAT?

Colwood, Razertip, Optima, Burnmaster, Truart, Tekchic, Walnut Hollow and possibly more.

There will also be branding irons, and other pyrography tools for you to try if you like!


CAN I GET A DISCOUNT?

Yes!

If you book during the Early Bird pricing, you can save $100.

If you are coming as a couple, you can also save money on your tickets by purchasing the Private Couples Room and sharing a bed.


ARE TICKETS REFUNDABLE?

The remaining ticket price is refundable within 14 days of your original purchase date.

Read more about our refund policy in our terms and conditions page.


IF I AM NOT FROM THE USA, CAN I STILL COME?

Absolutely! Get yourself to the Burn Savvy Retreat and back home, and we will provide you the pyrography experience of a lifetime.


WILL THERE BE STAIRS AT THE RETREAT?

There are stairs at most of the venues that are under consideration. If stairs are a problem for you, please consider carefully if this retreat is the best fit for you or not.
