Green woodworking techniques for stool making course


Create a beautiful piece of handmade furniture over two days. By building on the beginner's techniques learnt in our one-day Introduction to Green Woodworking course, you can craft a bespoke item of furniture for your home.

Please ensure you have already completed, or are booked to attend the introductory course before taking part in this one.

Because of the drying time needed for the stool legs, the two-day course is split over different weekends. We prefer the stool legs to dry naturally, without the use of a kiln. Please note Day 1 of this course is Sunday 15th September 2024. Day 2 of this course is Saturday 5th October 2024. This purchase covers payment for both sessions.

The course includes:
– A refresher on the properties and handling of green wood
– Getting familiar with woodworking tools including a pole lathe and draw knife
– Create and take home your own stool using a mix of green wood and hardwood

Day 1 – create the legs for your stool
Day 2 – create the seat and assemble the stool

Your instructor will be the ever patient and encouraging rural crafter, Richard Rood. You may have seen Richard in a Pop-Up Shop at Dalegate Market, or demonstrating at our Open Farm Sunday (2nd June 2024). Richard is passionate about the techniques of green woodworking and will help you create beautiful items for your home.

All tools are supplied by the instructor.

Maximum four participants in each course.
