Class #5 - Victorian Dressing Case c.1838 with Geoffrey Wonnacott

Scale:  One Inch
Skill Level: Intermediate or above, please
Cost: $100.00
Time: 9:00AM to 5:00PM

~~ Register as soon as possible, only the first 14 registrants will be accepted ~~

This is your chance to take a class from IGMA Fellow Geoff Wonnacott with lots of learning and in only one day. He is a superb teacher with a delightful English sense of humour.

A typical example of many produced around this period, this rosewood dressing case is an elaborate small cabinet with a drawer, partitioned trays and a mirror in the hinged lid. The project will involve the assembly and veneering of the main box. A drawer will be made and fitted. A separate tray will be constructed and partitioned to neatly fit typical dressing accessories, such as tiny hair brushes, combs, glass bottles, hand mirrors, etc. The cabinet will be lined in silk.

This will be a busy day and completion is likely. However, you will have all the information and materials to apply the finishing touches at home if required.
