Intro to Marquetry

Saturday, July 20th from 9:00am - 4:00pm
Instructor: Charlie Brown

Students will receive instruction and all materials, necessary to complete one 5"x 7" mounted marquetry picture to take home. Hand-operated fret saws will also be furnished for use during the class and will be available for purchase at the end of the class. Saws are sold by the instructor and cash or check is accepted. Students are requested to pack a lunch if desired since only a short lunch break is planned due to the time necessary to complete the picture.

INSTRUCTOR BIO: Charlie Brown relocated to Hickory, NC in 2009 after retiring as a civil engineer. He soon became involved with woodworking clubs he discovered while attending the Klingspor Woodworking Shop Extravaganza in Hickory. A lifelong woodworker, local clubs became a way to meet other woodworkers and learn new skills and techniques. He makes furniture and incorporates inlays, marquetry pictures and geometric shapes when possible. As the current President of the Western Piedmont Woodcrafters Club and immediate past President of Marquetarians of the Carolinas, he often demonstrates his skills at the Klingspor Extravaganza Marquetry booth and is a co-instructor for a yearly marquetry class at John Campbell Folk School. A frequent customer at Klingspor Woodworking Shops, Charlie occasionally teaches an Introduction to Marquetry Class at the Hickory store.
