Saturday 12 September & Saturday 19 September, 10am-3pm, Stool-making workshop in two parts @ Lincoln University

This class with Greg Quinn is held in two parts at our woodland workshop in the lovely Brandenburg Coppice, out at Lincoln University.

Come along and learn how to make a three-legged greenwood stool!

Session 1: Saturday 12 September, 10am–3pm at Lincoln University

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. We will be based in the beautiful Brandenburg Coppice, a unique woodland on the Lincoln University campus. 

Session 2: Saturday 19 September, 10am-3pm at Lincoln University

Fit the legs into the stool seat, trim and finish the seat, and then level the legs.

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 workshop is  for adults and only suited to those who can work safely without direct supervision with very sharp hand tools.

After you’ve booked, we’ll send you information re what to bring, wear and how to find us nearer the workshop date.

There are 6 places available in this workshop.

Minimum numbers are required for the class to run.

Bookings are essential, non-refundable and non-transferable. We do, however, understand that things come up and try and accommodate people to the best of our ability. This can include moving people to another class or a refund - but please be aware that this is reliant on us filling the original spot.

This is because all of our pricing, and our efforts to keep costs as low as possible while still paying the tutors a fee commensurate with their experience and allowing them to cover the costs of living, is based on running these classes with a certain number of participants.

We are grateful to be able to offer this workshop in a partially subsidised manner because of support from Creative New Zealand.
