Green Woodworking : 3 day Make a stool

Fri 31 May - 2 June 2019

This course will focus on producing a beautifully crafted and unique piece of furniture and fully understanding the natural shrinkage qualities of timber for ‘dry jointing’ and making a sturdy piece without the need for glue, nails or screws. After three days you will be able to take home a stool woven with a material of your choice [see below]. This course is run by green woodworker Charles Hooper.

Lunches, tea and coffee are provided over the 3 days.

This course will run from 0900am until 5.00pm approximately.  The final day generally ends after lunchtime [if all has gone to plan!]

Special Requirements:- Appropriate clothing required, sturdy boots etc.

Please note there will be an additional charge to be paid at the end of the course for the chosen seating for your stool. The 2018 prices are as follows :-

Chair [14” x 16”]:     Seagrass [£40]  Twisted Rush [£50]  Bark [£65]
Stool [11” x 11”]:    Seagrass [£30]  Twisted Rush [£35]  Bark [£45]
