It’s been a while since my last blog but I’ve been busy. Among a lot of other things I managed to build the website for the newly named Canadian School of French Marquetry. I thought long and hard about what the name might be but this one suggested by my friend Mat Nedeljko seemed to be the best fit if it was OK with Patrick Edwards. The last thing I wanted to do was have him think I was “passing off”
I had the opportunity to have dinner with Patrick when he was in Tucson a couple of months ago and asked him how he would feel about me using the name and the obvious implication that my school was somehow connected to The American School of French Marquetry. He said he thought it was a great idea and welcomed the implied relationship. That made me very happy and ended the discussion of what my school would be called. The real relationship is the shared desire to advance the knowledge and use of the chevalet and the techniques of the French masters.
The next classes will be held in June and at this time there are two places left in the level one course and three in the level two. I will be starting to promote the site shortly but I can say that I am very pleased with the feedback it has already generated. Four of the five spaces taken so far are from outside the province and were booked directly from the website.
Thanks for looking in.
