Come along and learn how to make a three-legged greenwood stool!
Please note: This workshop happens in two sessions of 6 hours.
We will be based in the beautiful Brandenburg Coppice, a unique woodland on the Lincoln University campus.
Session 1: Saturday 16 March 10am-4pm
Make your stool seat and legs. The legs then need to be dried before fitting, so we will do this for you prior to the next session.
Session 2: Saturday 30 March, 10am-4pm
Fit the legs into the stool seat, trim and finish the seat, and then level the legs.
You will learn basic whittling techniques with the draw-knife and travisher, and how to wedge a leg into a stool top, and other lovely resourceful skills. You’ll learn all about the ancient traditions of greenwood-working in a stunning outdoor setting.
Please note: This workshop is only suited to those who can work safely without direct supervision with very sharp hand tools.
After you’ve booked, we’ll send you information re what to bring, wear and how to find us nearer the workshop date.
Bookings are essential and non-refundable.
