Learn the absorbing craft of Marquetry, which uses natural wood veneer to produce pictures, and decorate boxes and items of furniture. You will learn this traditional inlay technique by making two Marquetry coasters or Christmas tree decorations, using real wood veneer, whilst acquiring sufficient knowledge to allow you to move on and produce your own marquetry projects. There are several coaster designs to choose from. All materials and equipment will be provided.
The course is suitable for anyone over 12 years old who is able to grip a craft knife; children under 16, must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
