Learn to make the Atlantic Ribbon Stool over 3 days in the convivial atmosphere and spacious workshop at the Atlantic Makers Collective. The stool is made using traditional wedge tenon joints, and spokeshaving to shape the legs and top. We then steam bend the lower rail and fix it in place using wooden pegs and wedges, carefully shaped using a variety of hand planes and chisels. You will be using hand tools throughout, with some use of the pillar drill. The result is a unique stool which doubles as a small coffee table. However you decide to use it, it’ll be a piece of furniture you can take pride in for decades to come!

The Atlantic Makers Collective (Atlantic Makers Ltd) was formed in 2020 in Bude, North Cornwall. The four directors share a passion for making fine furniture and we sought to build a workshop that not only produces exceptional furniture, but also benefits the local community. At the heart of this principle is sharing our resources and skills with talented, local makers and providing the space, facilities and support to help them grow their own businesses. We design and manufacture bespoke furniture for private and commercial clients, and run short-courses to inspire and nurture a love of woodworking. We also work with other designers and workshops to manufacture their furniture here in Cornwall. Our profits are used to grow the business, to support other makers within the Collective, and to employ and train Junior Makers and give them a strong start in the furniture-making industry.
