Make a bent stick chair

Event details

  • Price: £200
  • Topics: Wood and willow
Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, events may be cancelled.

Create your very own sculptural and natural bent-wood 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.

You will need to bring: Secateurs, a cordless drill and a claw hammer and wear sturdy footwear

Tutor: Dave Jackson

Dave Jackson is a self-employed coppice craftsman. 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.
