  • scroll saw school

    I posted this question on the beginners thread site but I was thinking this may be the better place to ask. Here is the question, have any of you taken a class teaching intarsia and if so was it worth the money? Thanks

    I went to A judy Gale roberts class in May (intermediate 2) I am glad that I spent the money. She has all levels of classes, although I would be comfortable with my scrolling skills before going.

    Judy and her assistant MaryAnn are incredibly skilled and very patient.

    One of our club members also took a private class with Kathy Wise that she absolutly loved.

      I have not taken a scroll saw or intarsia class but I have taken other types of WW classes. There are tip and tricks with all forms. Most you can not pick up form reading or watching a video. My advise is yes take a class if you can find one. If there are none in your area find someone in your area that does that type of work and ask them for pointers. Most of us would be glad to show our talents and our shops. By doing this you learn a skill and better yet make a new friend.

        I took an intarsia class at my local Woodcraft store in Northern VA. Many locations offer scroll saw classes as well.

        This link can let you see if anything is offered close to you:

        Good luck. After I get a little more experience under my belt, I plan on taking a JGR class.

          Scott is right. If you can find a local club or more experienced scrollers it really helps.

            I have gone to Judy Gale Roberts classes 8 times and usually make it my summer vacation. I highly recommend her classes and the area has lots of things available to make it a fun trip. If that is out of reach it always helps to take a class at Woodcraft if they're available. If you have any questions about Judy's classes she is always willing to answer them if you call. Good luck.

                Hey Trackman, where are you located? I teach beginner scroll saw at Woodcraft in Ventura, CA. I have not taught an Intarsia class yet because no one has requested it yet. But I would be open to it if there was interest.

                    I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                    These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
