Those members who join the Marquetry Society enter their work at the Annual National Exhibition which is the highlight of the year.

THE GROUP

The St Albans Marquetry Group meet every week from the beginning of September to the end of June to teach and continue practicing the art and craft of marquetry.
There is a lot of interaction between members who, after learning the accepted methods, share their own ideas to produce a desired effect.

DETAILS OF MEETINGS

We meet at The Greenwood Park Leisure Centre, Tippendell Lane, Chiswell Green, St Albans, on Wednesday from 7pm to 9pm.
There is an ample car park and for members who have no transport, we arrange a lift where possible.
