Marquetarians of the Carolinas is a group of artists meeting four or more times a year in different parts of North Carolina to further the interest in and promote the art of marquetry. We are a regional chapter of The American Marquetry Society, with members from both Carolinas, Virginia, and Tennessee. By giving demonstrations, teaching classes, and displaying marquetry at craft shows and galleries, we are striving to keep this ancient art alive.
At our meetings, we discuss various aspects of creating marquetry pieces, and have a speaker, either a member or guest, who presents instruction on a specific topic of interest. All phases of marquetry, including but not limited to, pattern development, veneer selection, cutting techniques, finishing, and framing are covered at our meetings. We also provide opportunities for members to share their work, and seek answers to questions of technique. We invite anyone interested to attend our meetings!
