VIRTUAL Wooden Earrings Demo (For Women & Non-binary folks comfortable with a femme centered space)

  • Zoom


Registration is closed

Join us for an afternoon with Sheilla Actis, a jewelry maker from Brazil! In this demonstration, Sheilla will share  marquetry veneer techniques that can be applied in small objects or jewelry. She will show different ways of cutting and gluing wood veneers creating  geometric or free lines patterns for your woodworking projects. She also share and talk about wood finishes and which ones she works with.  All the information will be guided by showing the steps of an earring pattern Sheilla created. The process is quite simple and it can be made at home with small pieces of wood veneers and basic hand tools

About Sheilla in her own words:

My name is Sheilla, I am a Brazilian woodworker who fell in love with wood at a violin making workshop in Cambridge, 201O. Later I got very interested in marquetry so I took every course I could find in Brazil. 

There are so many types, styles and techniques in marquetry. They can bring different possibilities to woodworking. 

For the past years I have  been teaching how to apply these techniques in jewelry and I also have started a small business to sell my work and create new projects from wood wastes that combine marquetry techniques and my creative process.
