Event description
Build a Two-Heart Voysey Chair with Nancy Hiller

About this Event

The Voysey two heart chair is based on an 1898 design by English architect C.F.A. Voysey, one of the Arts and Crafts movement’s most highly respected designers. The course instructor, Nancy Hiller, measured one of the original chairs at the Cheltenham Museum as part of the research for her book on English Arts & Crafts Furniture, published by Popular Woodworking Books in 2018.

Ideal for beginners and intermediate woodworkers, also suitable for those with advanced skills because it is a handsome chair that’s comfortable to sit in and has a fascinating history that we’ll discuss as we build.

Joinery is mortise and tenon. Also involves making a seat frame for weaving. Subtle details of shaping the legs and back, introduction to design and fabrication of a removable seat.

A fully catered lunch is included and served every day and drinks and snacks are provided all day. Please let us know in advance of any special dietary needs. It is a good idea to make your lodging reservations well in advance.
