« Part 9: Prepping for Piece by Piece Course Part 10 of Marquetry School series no next part

First of all, last fall we left for Europe about two days after classes ended so I didn’t post any photos. Here are a few to catch up.

This is Jim who was taking level one and two. I started him on the Monday and had a couple of days alone with him to get him started before the others came on Wednesday to do level three, the piece by piece class.

On Wednesday, Karen and Kendra showed up and we got started on level three. I’m glad there were only three as teaching two classes simultaneously is tricky enough but things went fine and everyone excelled.

Fast foreword to the present and level one has just wound up. I have three students and all are taking both level one and level two. This past week everyone completed level one with flying colours. On Monday we tackle the level two painting in wood style.

A few photos from level one.

As everyone will be back next week we will do certificates and class photos at the end of week two.

Thanks for looking in

I would say Jim was pretty blessed to have one on one instruction for the first couple of days. It looks like a great group of people doing some very nice marquetry.
