Want to make intriguing patterns and geometric designs using wood? Learn to embellish your own furniture or create unique and eye-catching pieces with our Parquetry and Marquetry course!
During this intensive 2 day weekend workshop Chelsea will teach you how to use the natural grain, texture, and colour of wood to create classic patterns and designs. You’ll be taught a traditional technique of parquetry and will turn it into a completed project to take home. The projects will be roughly A4 size and can be hung on the wall or used as a decorative trivet or serving board. This course is designed for anyone (beginners most welcome) who would like to learn parquetry.
Run over two full days, there will be plenty of time to ask questions and get help from parquetry master, Chelsea. We advise students to bring their own lunch each day and we will supply tea and coffee.
