More Information on this Workshop

The difference between a good project and an eye-popping project is often in its decorative details. There are many ways to decorate wood. This class will focus on the use of filigree wire to create inlays and borders to embellish wood. These techniques are applicable for projects from turned bowls to furniture legs and beyond. Students will also learn how to enhance the design with accent inlay crushed stone, mother of pearl or metal filings. Various design elements will be discussed to create individual patterns. Tools necessary to inlay the wire will be constructed or adapted from other tools. Proper application of the wire to the wood will be demonstrated and practiced by students. Several practice projects will be provided as well as the opportunity to devise your own design and to implement it in a project of your own. For students wishing to expand their repertoire of decorative skills, this class will offer simple techniques for striking project enhancements.
