Geometrica (Parquetry)

Traditional Veneering and Hide Glue

This class does not use the chevalet.  Historic methods of using veneers to create geometric patterns, such as “frisage” and “jeux de fond” will be taught, as well as the essential method of hammer veneering.  

Extensive use of both hot animal protein glue and liquid protein glues will provide students with practical experience. 

A variety of clamping method will be demonstrated, such as hot sand bags, hot/cold veneer press and vacuum systems.  All tools and materials are provided.
