Marquetry to be topic of Woodcrafters' Meeting
Bonnie Richardson from Germanton, NC, a skilled craft person in the art of marquetry will offer her second presentation about this art at the April 26, 9:30 a.m. Meeting of the Western Piedmont Woodcrafters.
Marquetry is a decorative inlay in which elaborate patterns are formed by the insertion of pieces of material(as wood, shell or ivory) into a wood veneer that is then applied to a surface (as a piece of furniture). Bonnie will demonstrate this technique and the use of various tools, art work and photos used in this process. This will be an expanded version of her presentation last year.
9:30 am - 12:30 pm.
