Rocky Mountain Marquetry Guild
The Rocky Mountain Marquetry Guild ("the Guild") provides a collegial forum for marquetarians and others interested in marquetry in Colorado and surrounding states. The Guild helps members learn more about marquetry, network with others interested in marquetry, show their work, and educate the public about marquetry. Guild meetings and Workshop sessions take place in Louisville and Thornton, Colorado.
The Rocky Mountain Marquetry Guild is a chapter of the national American Marquetry Society (AMS). The AMS is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of the art and craft of marquetry. Founded in 1997, the AMS now has 10 chapters across the United States.
In September 2013, the Guild hosted the AMS National Show in Denver. In addition to displaying the work of AMS members from around the country, the show featured Silas Kopf as the keynote speaker, and local marquetarians also made presentations.
Rocky Mountain Marquetry Guild's annual dues are $20 for a single or family membership. Dues support Guild activities, including speakers and shows.
In addition to meeting programs and opportunities to meet and network with other marquetarians and woodworkers, members receive discounts from several local businesses, including Rockler (Denver store) and B&B Rare Woods.
