Using freshly felled trees from the city, you’ll discover the techniques of slab and stick furniture making. Working completely by hand, with axe, drawknife, spokeshave, planes, brace & augers, we’ll guide you through the process, right from cleaving the living tree into legs, carving the seat & carefully shaping the flowing curves of a unique, beautiful & sturdy stool. You’ll be ready to sit down by the end of it all!

Course cost – £75, including all tools, materials, tea, coffee and something sweet.
