Bill  Boggs

Bill began attending William Holland School in 1993 and started teaching classes in 1997. He is experienced in lapidary, wire jewelry, and metalsmithing, but his first love has always been finding and grinding rocks. For Bill, intarsia is a way to show off multiple rocks and minerals by combining them into endless combinations of colors and patterns.

Intarsia I - Bill Boggs
We will be learning to cut and shape small pieces of colorful or otherwise interesting rocks and actually gluing them together to form intricate scenic and/or geometric patterns. This is a basic class. We will be using flat laps and Intarsia grinders (not faceting machines). Materials are provided but feel free to bring some of your own if you like. A start-up kit of basic supplies will be provided for a nominal cost. The overall costs for the week will depend upon how many slabs and of which type of material you purchase. Overall costs for the week will be less if you have your own material.
