Make a Bent Stick Chair, two day course at Acton Scott Historic Working Farm.
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
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.
