Marquetry is the art of making pictures with wood veneers. These can be stand alone creations that may be framed and hung like a painting, or panels that can be incorporated into furniture, boxes, trays and other items.
Peter Young is a well known studio furniture maker who often adds marquetry details and motifs to his work. We recently recorded a video that gives an example of the techniques to be learnt in weekend workshop that Peter will soon conduct from July 11–12 at the Darra, Brisbane workshop of Damion Fauser. Cost is $495 including all tools, materials, food and refreshments. Places are limited to 8 so book early! Email Damion Fauser or phone 0407 522 207.
