Sunday 6 May 2018, 9am–5pm, Lincoln University – Stool-making (adults)

Come along and learn how to make a greenwood stool!

We have created this 8-hour workshop especially for this project where we will be based in the beautiful Brandenburg Coppice, a unique woodland on the Lincoln University campus.

This is an opportunity for 6 people per workshop to come and learn to make a 3-legged stool from green oak from the Lincoln University campus, and local hazel (this will look similar to the stool pictured but the legs will be finished differently).

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 only suited to those who can work safely without direct supervision with very sharp hand tools. The image below shows the kinds of tools we’ll be using.

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

Huge thanks to Arts, Culture & Heritage Team at Selwyn District Council & Creative New Zealand Creative Communities, & Lincoln University for subsidising these workshops and enabling us to share the wonderful experience of greenwood-working.

Please email with any queries.
