Making Complex Seymour type Bandings with Steve Latta

advanced banding 53Bandings makes furniture alive with contrast and subtle elegance. This hands-on class will focus on how these complex bandings are made and then set into furniture components such as legs, aprons and tops. We will start with some simple patterns and work towards the more complex, such as herringbones, sawtooth, arrow bandings and the distinctive lunette bandings employed by John & Thomas Seymour at the dawn of the nineteenth century. This unique class will allow you to appreciate some of the ingenious ways in which this decoration can be fabricated which will allow you to add another design dimension to your work, be it traditional or contemporary. During the course of the weekend, attendees will combine efforts to generate some of these infamous forms and take a sampling home with them. Steve Latta is one of this country’s leading authorities on Federal furniture, Inlays and decorative bandings. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from one of the best! Tuition: $255.00 (plus materials)

Hi Bob,
Just a quick note to thank you and Will for an excellent experience in the Chapin Class.  I had to be home early and was not able to properly thank  you for the additional time on Sunday.  I have learned a lot in this class as I have in all of your programs.  I’ll see you in the fall.

John
