Learn how to make a beautiful hand-made green wood chair from locally grown hazel in this green wood working course.
You will make this simple yet sturdy chair using simply a saw, drill and hammer. No wood working experience is necessary and you will be guided through the whole process. Maurice will be on hand to give you as much help as you need.
The hazel poles are harvested using an ancient coppice technique and are completely sustainable. All wood will be provided, if you have a cordless drill please bring it with you.
You’ll take your own unique chair home at the end of the day – don’t forget to make sure you have space in your car!
Numbers are strictly limited on this course and it always sells out, so don’t delay if you’d like to come along.
You'll discuss the basic shape and framework of a green wood chair before Maurice talks you through the process of chair making.
Every chair is different and equally beautiful - think about your design and how you will work with the hazel rods.
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.
The course will finish with tea and cake and the opportunity to ask any further questions.
What a brilliant day! Thanks Maurice for your patience and calm teaching.
I created something way beyond what I thought possible!

Make a Green Wood Chair will run from 9.30am until approximately 5pm and includes a delicious farm lunch. The end time will depend on how quickly you work. Don’t worry, there’s no rush and you can have as much or as little help as you need to build your chair.
We will provide all the hazel rods and equipment for you to make your chair. If you have a cordless drill, please bring it with you (fully charged).
You will be making your chair in one of our indoor barns but you will need to choose your hazel poles outside. You will need to bring gardening gloves and wear sturdy outdoor footwear.
You will leave with your full-size chair at the end of the day, so please make sure you can fit it in your car!
