The annual subscription is £45. Which is equivalent to £1 per week. The group has a small shop that sells various tools, veneers and sundries at low prices.
Tea or coffee and biscuits can be purchased at a nominal charge.


We have an annual Group competition to exhibit our work. The winners of which go on to represent us in intergroup competitions with Harrow, Chelmsford and Redbridge Groups.
To advertise the craft of marquetry we attend local craft fairs and fetes.
Those members who join the Marquetry Society enter their work at the Annual National Exhibition which is the highlight of the year.


Over the years many interesting people have demonstrated their marquetry skills at St Albans Group, making pictures, coasters and various applied work.

You will be pleased to know that a gallery of member’s pictures – past and present, is now available in the following pages.

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.
During the year demonstrations will also be held on more advanced techniques such as sand shading, fragmentation etc..
We are a welcoming, friendly group, and members enjoy sharing their own ideas and techniques with others. On the left you can see members at work in the group.


We meet at Orton Hall, Greenwood Park Leisure Centre, Tippendell Lane, Chiswell Green, St Albans, on Wednesday from 6.30pm to 9pm.
There is an ample car park and for members who have no transport, we can arrange a lift where possible.
(See map 'link' further down on this page)


New comers to marquetry are provided with tuition from an experienced Marquetarian, where they are taught all the basic techniques of Marquetryin order to create their first coaster and picture. All the veneers to produce their first coaster and picture are provided free from the group's shop.
Below is an example of a first picture.
