| Make a piece of jewelry with a wooden edge inlay (hurdy-gurdy technique)

Marc Reymen - Saturday 30 maart & Sunday 31 maart
2 hours
€ 25
Minimum age:

Saturday 30 maart
Sunday 31 maart

Each hurdy-gurdy has an edge inlay in a block motif of dark and light wood. This is not only for aesthetic purposes, but also necessary to protect the sound surface.


Such an edge inlay looks very impressive at first glance… “Are those all separate pieces of wood?” people often ask. Yes indeed, but it’s easier to make than you think, if you know how…


We will make a few strips of edge inlay and then turn them into a nice brooch or tie pin. A pair of earrings or a pendant are also options.


Because we have to take time into account, we do not hesitate to “smuggle” a bit, but after this workshop you will view an edge inlay differently than before.
