This year at Marc Adams was a full class, invigorated students and what a great atmosphere to make some excellent marquetry pieces, stretch the limits, and get into some dynamic veneering. I did attempt my 8 min chessboard (OK… so it was 12 min.) and I did a demo marquetry table for the class that got auctioned off for 500.- to help support the R.Cliff Educational Foundation at the school. Everyone took home at least two projects, and were happy with this new found skill under their belt! The MASW is always interesting with the diverse classes that are taught there, and a great opportunity for me to see other teachers teach their unique skills. It reminds me that we are all students at some level, and there is always more to learn. I hope to be back at MASW in 2019, after getting caught up with my 18 month backlog of projects I have left at home!
