There’s no need for many tools: especially if it is handmade and allows us to do our own masterpiece, a unique piece of furniture that carries our feelings, our history and our new skills.

About

Take home your completed and unique chair! Learn to make a free-form chair of your own design. We will use fresh-cut wood cut from the surrounding forest to form the seat, legs and back for a creative and unique chair.

In 6 days, you will learn all the basic green woodworking techniques, including splitting wood by hand, shaving it to a fine finish, and jointing it. You will also learn to make your own shaving horse, a knowledge that allows you to continue to practice your art when you get home.

TAKE HOME YOUR COMPLETED AND UNIQUE CHAIR!

"Free-form" refers to a style of green woodwork which uses non -straight pieces of wood. You will learn how to accurately drill holes for jointing these irregular components. This is a course for people wanting to make something totally unique and personal, which will inevitably express something of their own personality.

Peter Lanyon presents himself as a furniture designer maker, a green wood tutor and community project co-ordinator.

Many many years of wood working experience, based on apprenticeship and a large academic career in furniture design and technology, an enormous number of public works and exhibitions all over the UK, combined with a great pleasure to share his knowledge makes this ARTIST WEEK so unique.
