Sunday 30 April & Sunday 14 May, 10am-3pm, Stool-making

Course Overview

Learn how to make a three-legged stool with Greg Quinn in this two part workshop. In the first session you will make your stool seat and legs. The legs then need to be dried before fitting, so we will do this for you prior to the next session. You will learn basic whittling techniques with the draw-knife and travisher, and how to wedge a leg into a stool top, and other lovely resourceful skills. You’ll learn all about the ancient traditions of greenwood-working in a stunning outdoor setting.

Please note: This class with Greg Quinn is held in two parts and is weather dependent. You must be able to make the rain dates too.  (Session 1: Sunday 30 April (rain date 7 May) and Session 2: Sunday 14 May (rain date 21 May)) This workshop is  for adults and only suited to those who can work safely without direct supervision with very sharp hand tools.

Gregory Quinn's working life has consisted predominantly of orchard work, learning the care & craft associated with growing fruit. He continues to work with people on their Home Orchard Care. His craft practice has developed in the last three years to include green woodworking, a change from the orchard yet an extension of his working closely with trees. Gregory now makes greenwood furniture, rakes, pegs, food storage crates, brooms & other objects of use. The craft skills gained in working with experienced practitioners like Richard Hare, Alex Yerks & Juliet Arnott, combined with his own practice & exploration, have become an integral part of his life.
