Intarsia, originally a wood inlay technique dating back to the 7th century AD, is a way of seamlessly joining two different pieces of material. Each student will receive instruction on assembling intarsia slabs, to include layout, cutting, grinding, and gluing. Each student will finish one or more assembled intarsia slabs, to be cabbed or flat-lapped at their leisure.


Prerequisite: Cabbing 101 (Basic Cabochons) or equivalent experience.
Class Fee: $80
, payable by credit card or PayPal when you register (see below).
Materials Fee: Free/BYOM. Bring your own slabs, from which we will cut approximately 1” strips. This allows you to bring material that you would like to see assembled together and with which you are comfortable working. There will be additional material available for purchase from either the instructor or the shop.
Requirements: Bringing an optivisor and/or eye protection is recommended. You may also want to bring something for taking notes (pen & paper, phone, clay tablet & stylus, etc.).
