After the suc­cess of the pre­vi­ous Intro­duc­tion to Mar­quetry class, I am pleased to announce we are run­ning a sec­ond class in just a few weeks. I will be teach­ing this scroll-saw based mar­quetry class at Nova Labs in Reston (1916 Isaac New­ton Square W, Reston, VA 20190) on Sept 16 and 17th.

We will cov­er design, cut­ting, lay­out, and glue up of pic­tures using the pack­et tech­nique. I will also intro­duce the use of French style assem­bly boards to pre­pare the pic­tures for glue up.

This will be the sec­ond edi­tion of this class in this loca­tion — Nova Labs and the Wash­ing­ton Wood­work­ers Guild co-host­ed the first ver­sion in April this year — and we’ve learned a lot from the excel­lent feed­back pro­vid­ed by our first group of stu­dents, so I am look­ing for­ward to try­ing out a stream­lined and improved les­son plan.

If you are inter­est­ed in attend­ing, sign-ups are through this link: https://​www​.meet​up​.com/​N​O​V​A​-​M​a​k​e​r​s​/​e​v​e​n​t​s​/​2​4​2​4​7​6​3​79/

If you aren’t able to make the course — or even if you are — on the Fri­day evening Sept 15 at 7 pm I will be hold­ing a free pre­sen­ta­tion on mar­quetry for those attend­ing the class or any­one else that is inter­est­ed. I’ll talk about mar­quetry through the ages, show some amaz­ing exam­ples, the var­i­ous tech­niques that have evolved as tech­nol­o­gy has changed and how those tech­niques are still rel­e­vant today. I will dis­cuss some of my own work in light of these tech­niques, and also cov­er a lit­tle design phi­los­o­phy for the week­end class.

If you plan on attend­ing this dis­cus­sion we’d appre­ci­ate you sign­ing up at https://​www​.meet​up​.com/​N​O​V​A​-​M​a​k​e​r​s​/​e​v​e​n​t​s​/​2​4​2​4​7​6​5​01/ so that we have some idea how many peo­ple to pre­pare for.
