Group Competition 2021

Each year the Group chooses a competition subject at the AGM. The completed entries are normally displayed at the Eccleshall Show and the winner chosen by public vote, but with the Show cancelled for a ssecond year because of Covid the Show organisers again arranged an "E" Show. The marquetry comeptition was still judged by public vote - but on-line.

The 2021 subject was intended to be a "3-veneer" picture or applied item, but to encourage entries the competition was made open, with any exhibit accepted.
