Two day Decorative Veneering Class  with Paul Schürch

     My goals for this Class is to present, perform and guide individual projects that will show students what is possible in the art of decorative veneering and marquetry. This will be a class devoted to lectures, demonstrations and hands-on projects for each student. Everyone will try some basic veneering including some marquetry and border work. I recommend reviewing the DVD/Book  `Decorative Veneering' prior to class.  
Students can also bring some designs of their own veneer projects or inlay ideas for constructive critique. This weekend will be quite busy with the amount of information I will cover, and I will be presenting a slide show of my work some evening during the program. Each student will be creating a decorative veneer panel that they can take home or we will create one larger group project during the class. It is my hope that you will master and understand the necessary techniques to get started in the art of decorative veneering with confidence, and successfully incorporate this art and craft into your own future furniture pieces.

Michael Cullen Seminar at the Hollywood Visual Arts Pavilion

Thirteen SFWG members attended the Michael Cullen seminar on April 19-20.
Topics included design concepts from start to finished product, bandsaw box making, carving techniques and the use of milk paints.
Michael passed around 1/8 scale models of six tables he was commissioned to create for a client.
Each table had to be unique and complement existing paintings. Michael discussed at length the design process involved in each of these tables.
Photos of the final design can be seen on Michael's website.
