Rustic Furniture Making – 2 Day Course
Introduction to Green Woodworking
This introductory Green Woodwork course is an ideal opportunity to try a great traditional craft by making a piece of charming rustic furniture . You’ll start this course by being given pieces of a simple ash log and end it with your own unique, hand crafted, rustic stool or small table!
Traditional tools and techniques will be used throughout the two days, including froes, shave horses and drawknives. By the end of the first day you will have produced all your legs and braces and these will be gently dried. The following day you will be carefully aligning your mortise and tenon joints and fitting the various pieces together….. with no screws, nails or glue!
Depending on stock there may be an opportunity to use a different wood for the seat or table top, such as oak or beech. If you would like to make a small table or bench there is a charge of £15 for every extra 12 inch of plank required..
This course starts at 9.30am and finishes at approximately 4pm. The building will be open from 9.15am so please arrive ready to start on time. The Craft Centre is the wooden barn with two chimneys, next to the dry stone walls. It is easily visible from the car park. Free exit car parking tickets will be given out at the end of each day.
Our resident Greenwood Worker Mark Wood will be the tutor for this 2 day course.
