Whether you’re a master at inlay, or you’re want to get started, the inlaid tea caddy class is the perfect introduction to veneer and inlay. You’ll spend the week working with solid wood and veneers, adding decorative elements to a small project, and learning about using a variety of techniques to dress your furniture.
Some of the skills learned in the Inlaid Tea Caddy class are:
- Basics of making bandings
- Hammer veneering
- Combining solid wood and veneer
- Time permitting – creating decorative marquetry inlays
Materials are included in the class fee, however, you may supply your own if you prefer. Please call or email for a materials list (for registered students only).
