What you'll learn

  • Get to know the basics

    You'll discuss the basic shape and framework of a green wood chair before Maurice talks you through the process of chair making.

  • Designing your chair

    Every chair is different and equally beautiful - think about your design and how you will work with the hazel rods.

  • Roll up your sleeves

    It's time to make your chair - Maurice will guide you through the process and give you as much or as little help as you need.

  • Q&A

    The course will finish with tea and cake and the opportunity to ask any further questions.
