Hazel and willow stool kit course
Our day stool course runs alongside the day basket course in the workshop and includes lunch.
Begin to discover some of the mysteries of the ancient craft of green woodworking. How is it possible to build without nails and screws? To give you time to make the stool in just one day, the mortise and tenon joints have been made for you by us. You will use this kit to build and design your stool frame – without nails or screws.
In the afternoon you will be shown how to use randing to weave your seat. You will level the stool with a Japanese hand saw. Finally, the stool will be finished by sanding and polishing the button-top seat posts, to bring out the beauty of the grain of the wood.
This is a very satisfying course and you will enjoy using your handmade stool for many years to come!
We’re very happy to run this course for two or more people. So just go ahead and book on-line if there are two or more of you. If you’re wanting to come on your own, please email us to see if the course is running. Thank you 🙂
All tuition, willow, tools and hazel stool frame are included. Vegetarian/vegan lunch, and plenty of snacks, cake and drinks provided.
