Shropshire Council

Make a bent stick chair

Event details

  • Price: £200
  • Topics: Wood and willow

This is a two-day course, running over a Saturday and Sunday, between 10am and 4pm.

Create your very own sculptural and natural bentwood chair from sustainably coppiced hazel. These traditional rustic chairs are immensely pleasing to the eye, very satisfying to make and can be tailored for your comfort. The finished chair will demand centre stage in any home or garden.

Tutor: Dave Jackson

Dave Jackson is a self-employed coppice craftsman from the Malvern Hills in Worcestershire. He won the 2012 Log to Leg World Championships, which involves turning two identical Windsor chair legs on the pole lathe starting from a log of good quality ash.
