Learn how to make a beautiful hand-made green wood chair from hazel grown locally in this green wood working course.
You will make this simple yet sturdy chair using simply a saw, drill and hammer. No wood working experience is necessary and you will be guided through the whole process.
The hazel poles are harvested using an ancient coppice technique and are completely sustainable. All wood will be provided, if you have a cordless drill please bring it with you. You’ll take your own unique chair home at the end of the day – don’t forget to make sure you have space in your car!
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
Make a Green Wood Chair will run from 10am until approximately 4 or 5pm and includes a delicious farm lunch. The end time will depend on how quickly you work. Don’t worry, there’s no rush and you can have as much or as little help as you need to build your chair.
We will provide all the hazel rods and equipment for you to make your chair. If you have a cordless drill, please bring it with you (fully charged).
You will leave with your full-size chair at the end of the day, so please make sure you can fit it in your car!
