« Part 10: Spring 2017 Classes underway Part 11 of Marquetry School series Part 12: Week Two, fall classes »

I haven’t posted on this blog for a while because as the classes pass it’s really just more of the same but this fall’s classes have a little something different. Long time LJ buddy Peter Marcucci (woodbridge) has crossed the country to attend and is a star student. I’ve been looking forward to this for a few years now and we’re making the most of it.

Only two students for level one and three for level two next week so I have time to spend with them all. There is something to be said for small classes.

Congrats to Peter and Lauren who managed to finish three études and still have time to try their hands at hammer veneering and French polishing.

They will both be back next week for level two, painting in wood, and will be joined by Frank who completed level one last June.

Thanks for looking in. More next week.

That’s a great-looking program, Paul. You really have a full shop to teach in and those student’s projects look really top notch. That’s a testament to you as a teacher. Thanks for sharing.

The smiles say it all. Looks like their projects are coming along beautifully. I hope that they are both going to be posting on LJ’s. I’m interested in following their future progress.

Great to see Paul. It is a pity I’m living that far from you. I think it would be grandiose and instructive to follow a course in one of your small classes. I don’t know if I have the patience for making marquetry, but I’m sure I would learn a lot from you.

This not something I am likely to try but it is very interesting. I enjoy seeing what your students are making and the fact you are teaching this art.

I would love to see more detail on how they do this.

It’s a shame. I used to live in Comox, and this would have been a great school to have known about when lived out on the West Coast.

So great to see these students turning out such good work Paul. I’m enjoying these blogs and catching up on what you have been up to.
