Using traditional knife techniques on sample work, we check different veneers and materials for their design characteristics. The individual parts of a picture are either set into recesses cut into the base veneer or fitted together and glued onto a base. You will also practice the three-dimensional representation of designs.
The course also introduces advanced inlay techniques.
