The American Marquetry Society (AMS) is a nonprofit corporation devoted to advancing the art and craft of marquetry. Our goal is to promote, inform and educate the general public about this unique art form.
Founded in 1997, we currently have several regional Chapters located throughout the United States and our membership is scattered worldwide.
We openly welcome anyone interested in marquetry, from the enthusiastic beginner to the skilled marquetarian.
The AMS publishes a quarterly Magazine called "The American Marquetarian", devoted to distributing helpful information about marquetry. Each issue offers a variety of information such as...
- Shared marquetry techniques.
- Helpful projects for the marquetarian.
- Questions and answers column.
- Sample patterns
- Regional news and updates
If you are interested in pursuing marquetry, we hope you will consider becoming a member of the AMS. All persons are welcome regardless of age, gender or location.
