Instructor Bio

Graham Wilkinson first became interested in marquetry in England at the age of 14 when he saw the work of a family friend, though he didn’t have the chance to pursue the craft until he came to Canada. In 2008, he joined the Marquetry Society of Canada. He has been teaching marquetry at monthly meetings of the society and other venues since 2010. Conrad Fernandes was born in Ethiopia and has also lived in India and the Middle East, where marquetry is widely practised. After moving to Canada in 1989, Conrad began to attend wood shows, and in 2008, he attended a Marquetry Society meeting – the best thing he ever did. Conrad has been teaching marquetry since 2010 at monthly meetings and various wood shows. He also teaches members in the mentoring program.
