Veneering Course 11th and 12th May 2019 - Places Still Available

Apologies, it has been some time since we last blogged - but that’s because SO much has been happening here at the furniture school and we haven’t had a minute to write. However, we do plan to update you on the progress very soon!

A short blog today to let you all know about our upcoming veneering course happening on Saturday the 11th May and Sunday 12th May. There are still places available on the course if you’d like to join us!

Our weekend veneering course is jam packed full of information and teaching around the process of veneering and marquetry.

Throughout the two days, you will make s veneered tray or your own marquetry or parquetry design, and you will have the added bonus of learning how to steam bend the handles for the project. You will cover:

  •     selecting veneer, book matching, slip matching

   •     various methods of pressing and jointing veneer

   •     vacuum press principles, types of press and use of equipment

   •     sand Scorching techniques and suitable use and application of adhesives

  • Steam bending handles for your tray

It’s a very popular course and has been thoroughly enjoyed by past students that have come for the veneering weekend, as shown by the review from Nicola below:

“Wonderful venue and great friendly teaching! I learned a lot in the last two weekend courses I attended and it really opened my mind to fine woodwork in general. Recommended for all skill levels.“
