Patrick (left) & John Faleur with the winning entries of a  Pyrography competition      

This website was launched in 2000 by Patrick Faleur (above left) , formerly the MD of Janik Ltd. Janik, founded by John Faleur (above right) in the 1970's were the UK's original and largest supplier of pyrography tools and wooden blanks. They had been operating from Ruthin in North Wales, from 1978 to 2004 when they were taken over by Craft Supplies.

Patrick was awarded the Craftsman Magazine Website of the Year 2001 Award for Content (seen above with the trophy). Since 2001 the website has been very much expanded, and is now regarded as the world's premier website devoted exclusively to the art of Pyrography.

Thanks go to the many contributors without whom this website would not exist in its present form.
