Event description

Description

This simple footstool is an easy way to introduce two basic chairmaking skills – making a simple post-and-rung construction and weaving a danish cord seat. The class will be broken into two parts; on the first day, students will build the footstool itself using simple techniques (well suited to non-chairmakers and chairmakers alike) and on the second day students will learn the “no-nail” method of weaving a Danish paper cord seat.

Alongside the techniques involved in this construction, students will also learn basic finishing techniques for chairs, using oil, soap or modern finishes.

There are no prerequisites for this class, apart from having a block plane and coming ready to learn!

Registration for the class is free. Registrants will be invoiced for the $330 class fee, which includes all materials. A refund of your class fee will be issued in the case of cancellation if a student from the waitlist is available to take the yielded spot.
