Time to ditch the choppy shading.

Let's get real here. You want to get rid of that uneven shading you've been "working" with and trade up for the buttery smooth shading that you've been craving for forever.

I totally get it. And I totally agree. Ditch that nonsense! Seriously, this is the course I wish was out there when I first started out. This course would have saved me years. Years. You should have it better than I did.

And you will.

You're about to get all the support you need to make it happen.

You get my 7 step method to beautiful shading in half the time. You get over 40+ lessons with downloads, workshops, downloads, techniques, guides and mindset shifts you need to see those smooth results that you've always craved.

At the risk of sounding corny, I genuinely want the next generation of pyrographers to skip the years, the headache, the frustration and overwhelm that I spent years overcoming. You deserve better.

This course will help.

I want YOU to be successful. I want YOU to be confident. I want YOU to have buttery smooth shading and get it as quickly as your woodburning tool will allow.

Let's get you up to buttery smooth status!

Hey there!

I'm Jannie. Your Pyro Professor.

I cannot wait to teach you all the shading tips, techniques, and mindset shifts I've discovered in my years as a professional woodburning artist.

Just a few fun facts...

  • Burning professionally since 2016
  • Teaching woodburning since 2019
  • Loves people
  • Loves music
  • Loves farming
  • Burns everything (yes, even dinner)

Ever been afraid...

To try something new? Of ruining a good piece of wood? That smooth shading would take ages to learn?

Yeah. Me too.

I remember wishing I had some way to practice techniques without spending an arm and a leg on wood. 

Plus, I was sick of fighting wood grain. 

Tired of my hand cramping up long before I could get anywhere close to the smooth shading that I wanted so badly. 

Annnnnnd I admit it. I was bored with it taking so loooooong to see the results I wanted.

I was right where you are...

There wasn't much information out there. And the best information was always just out of reach.

As a visual learner, I needed to see it.

I scoured YouTube for shading tips, but the videos left me wanting.

The best books, blogs, and websites were either so exhaustive that I felt overwhelmed and discouraged or they didn't explain their methods in a way that I could follow along.

I needed to see the techniques in action.

And I really, really, reeeeaaally wanted to learn these techniques FAST so I could get the results I'd desperately wished for.

And sadly, what I was looking for just wasn't there.

After years of trial and error, wishing I had the techniques that the pros had...

I finally learned how to get that buttery smooth shading. How to create masterful texture and contrast in half the time. How to burn art I was truly proud to show off and customers were excited to buy.

Then I made a promise.

I promised to make it faster and easier for my fellow pyrographers to learn these coveted techniques. I promised to make it simple, straight-forward, and easy to follow.

And finally, I'm delivering on that promise.

More than just techniques.
You get a complete foundation for gorgeous results.

Got questions? Read these FAQs about the Savvy Pyrography Shading course

  • Is this for me?

    Not if you think watching a video is going to transform your shading overnight. Then this is NOT for you.

    This IS for you if you are frustrated with your current shading skills. This IS for you if you want fast and beautiful results every time you shade. This IS for you if you are ready to put in the work to take your pyrography shading to the next level.

  • What are the course requirements?

    - 1 wire nibbed burner
    - 1 shading nib
    - Practice wood pieces
    - High-quality wood piece for your final project. Remember, I'm buying your wood this round!

    I share my favorite tools and materials when you enroll. You also need to be ready to learn, practice, and apply the techniques.

  • Do I have to already own a wire-nibbed woodburning machine to sign up?

    Not to sign up. But you will definitely need a wire-nib burner to go through the course. And if you don't have one yet, you can get one during that first week. In the beginning of the course, I walk you through what you should look for in a tool to help you know which one you should invest in.

    If you DO already have one, use that one! Just make sure you have 1 shading nib to work with.

  • What are the perks of signing up right now?

    For a limited time, you get $100 off the regular price, free wood (I'm buying for you this round), and to me in the private group. I will be there giving my first round of students the royal treatment so I can make sure they are empowered to get the results they want AND I can make permanent improvements to the course.

  • How is this different from other pyrography courses?

    Most courses just give you techniques. But then you have to rely solely on the course creator to get the results. This course gives you so much more. It empowers YOU to become the master pyrographer. It combines techniques & skills with tool mastery PLUS a proprietary method to get beautiful shading. Fast. Every time.

  • How much time will I need to go through the program?

    There is about 1 hour a week of workshops and demonstration which you can speed up, slow down, or pause so you can work at your own pace. Then you will have some tools and guides to read through. From there, a little practice everyday will really help you to achieve savvy status.

  • How much is it going to cost outside of the course?

    Depends on what you want and what you already have. You'll definitely want to invest in a quality wire-nib burner (a good one costs around $100-$300) and the wood you'll need to burn on (practice wood + a final piece may cost around $20-$30... but I'm buying your wood for this first round). If you don't have a wire-nib burner, I help guide you through which tool you should invest in. I also guide you through finding the best/cheapest wood to use. I suggest pattern transfer materials that you can buy too, but that is not required.

  • Can I get different pricing options?

    You have 2 options - pay in full price or the 2-payments plan price. Right now you can get the course for $100 off the regular price. This is an introductory price. You will never see the course at this low of a price again.

    If you want to take advantage of this limited time price, please sign up now.

Pyrography doesn't have to be slow and tedious.

You can achieve buttery smooth shading and rich texture at a pace that you are comfortable burning at.

And you're about to get "comfortable" with a much faster pace.

Get the deal of the century! Enroll now before the price goes up.

Since this is the first time this course is being offered, you get Early Bird pricing. *PLUS* I'll buy your wood for the course! (first release students only)

Snag it now before it's gone!

For real. You will never see this price again.

P.S. Time to ditch the choppy shading

Seriously. Stop messing around. If you want smooth shading, and faster results than traditional pyrographers, sign up now.

I'm giving you all the outpourings of my heart and soul here. I want YOU to be successful. I want YOU to be confident. I want YOU to have buttery smooth shading and get it as quickly as your woodburning tool will allow.

You're about to get all the support you need to make it happen. You get my 7 step method to beautiful shading in half the time. You get over 40+ lessons with downloads, workshops, downloads, and mindset shifts that you need to see those smooth results that you've always craved.

You deserve it. And this course is going to help.

It's time to invest in your art.

Your business.


Here's to YOUR success. I simply cannot wait to see how you grow and progress. See you on the inside!
