Marquetry Class in Vicenza, Italy

The trip to Vicenza, Italy was just great! The art directors just wouldn't let me stop teaching, so we put in several 14 hr days of intensive marquetry lessons! ... Along with the excellent after hour parties and marvelous 7 course Italian dinners!! I met some really talented minds over there, excellent artists - tops in their fields. Anyway, everyone walked away with a couple of nice marquetry pictures to impress their divisions. Thanks again Sandy!    ... Dave Bilger
