A Very Good Effect: Ornamenting 18th Century Woodwork

January 26 - January 29

Working Wood in the 18th Century celebrates its 25th year with a flourish of ornament and a gathering of craftspeople and scholars. Whether adorned with carving, inlay, marquetry, or japanning, period woodwork draws much of its enduring appeal from thoughtfully designed and well-executed ornament. Join Colonial Williamsburg staff and special guests presenters Brock Jobe, Mary May, Frank Strazza and Jerome Bias for an exploration of the techniques, people, and stories behind this decorative splendor.
