« Part 7: Level Two, Painting in Wood ....first two days Part 8 of Marquetry School series Part 9: Prepping for Piece by Piece Course »

Well, the spring 2016 classes are all finished up now. Everyone completed two études in painting in wood method and all the work was looking pretty good. Thanks and congrats to the students.

Here are some wind-up photos of the fun and some shots of the excellent work turned out. Not all the motifs got mounted on plywood as some were taken home to be used on larger projects.

Thanks for looking in,

Paul

Thanks Everyone. It was a lot of fun. Tom, it’s only B.C. wine, not French Champagne.
One of the students, Lorna, did the names and dates on the diplomas. The rest is just a fancy computer font printed on diploma blanks from Staples. They look pretty official though. :-)
