Marquetry is the art of decorative wood inlay. In this class, students will learn the basic concepts of this ancient woodworking form, including a little bit of history and a little bit of geometry. There are many techniques that can be used to create marquetry, and our class will focus on one of them: double bevel marquetry. What looks complex, is really quite simple, and this class will demystify the process and start students on the path to incorporating marquetry in their own projects.
All skill levels welcome. No prerequisites. All you need is a computer and a good internet connection!
