Creating Federal Shell Paterae with Don Williams

Don Williams Conch shell paterae640One of the hallmarks of Federal style furniture is the small oval inlay compositions known as "patera," a term probably derived from Roman oval serving trays.  One of the most popular expressions of this art form is the stylized conch shell patera, and in this one-day hands-on workshop you will be able to execute a completed patera yourself, ready for inlaying into a project once you go home.  The processes of sawing and shading the elements with scorching sand will be demonstrated first by the instructor and then you will get on to making your own.  All tools and materials will be provided by the instructor. Tuition: $149.00 plus materials.
