Line-and-berry descended from the Welsh tradition of vine-and-berry inlay. It came to southeastern Pennsylvania in the late 17th and early 18th centuries as William Penn opened up his lands for settlement. Used mainly on chests of drawers and valuables chests (spice boxes, as they are often called), the style consists of straight lines and arcs of holly arranged in geometric patterns and typically set into a walnut background. The techniques that Steve will be discussing, although specific to the spice box project, are applicable to a wide range of inlay styles, ranging from the Federal period to contemporary designs. In this hands-on workshop, students will practice cutting line-and-berry inlays and will also learn about materials, design, and the necessary tools used to execute these techniques.
