Ash chair making course

Date of Event: 6 June 2018

Event Category: Training Course

This course will teach you how to make a complete chair from an ash log, it is considered to be the ultimate green wood course. Make a splendid solid seat or woven seat side-chair (with no arms). Use the axe, shaving horse and pole lathe to turn components for a frame chair or Windsor chair of your own design.  Steam bending, jointing, seat hollowing are all covered. Indulge yourself!

Green Wood is freshly felled, still sappy wood. To work it requires a set of simple techniques based on an understanding of how wood reacts – both to the tools, and to the dry and shrinking process. Because it is green, the wood is soft and easy to work with hand tools, the process therefore creates little waste, and can utilise small trees and logs. Greenwood work is green in all senses of the word – especially as at Bore Place the trees are felled as part of ongoing woodland restoration and sustainable management. Our courses and volunteer days are about learning woodcraft and helping with the conservation of Bore Place.

The course is run over 5 days 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th June and 1st July 2018 (5 days) and you must be available to attend all days.

On the first day the start time will be 9.30am tea/introductions for 10am start, all other days we will start at 10am.

As you may be outside for some of the course, please wear warm, comfortable clothes that are suitable for the forecasted weather conditions and wear sturdy shoes or boots at all times in the workshop.

There is a maximum of 6 participants for this course so book early to avoid disappointment.

£250 per person

The cost of the course has been subsidised by The Ash Project  and is payable directly to John Waller. Please bring a packed lunch, hot drinks will be provided.
