Introduction to Straw Marquetry with Delphine Robins, Sat 12th Aug, £50, 10 – 1pm

In this relaxed half day workshop artist Delphine Robins will introduce you to the wonderful world of straw marquetry. You'll learn about the history of the artform, handle specially sourced hand-dyed natural materials and learn how to use bone folders and veneer hammer to create a beautiful, patterned panel to take away. All tools and materials will be provided on this workshop, held in our Rope Store Gallery, adjacent to the café terrace.

Delphine Robins is a French artisan living on the Isle of Wight specialising in straw marquetry. Delphine creates wall compositions and bespoke furniture using hand dyed natural straw.
