About the Event

During our 2 day workshop our skilled carpenters father and daughter team with over 50 years experience will teach you traditional green woodworking techniques, using your new found skill to turn locally sourced timber into a hand crafted milking stool. You will use old traditional skills used by the Chiltern chair bodgers using a draw knife, shave horse and pole lathe. You will learn the craft of log to leg, splitting green timber and using selected hand tools to create your own personal stool to take home.  

The stools are perfect accessories for the home, to use as a houseplant stand to add height or as a bedside table. We have chosen this piece of furniture specifically for it's adaptability and multi-use so you can furnish your house with pride.

We will be working under an open barn so please bring plenty of layers just in case the Welsh weather turns chilly.

Our workshops will be limited to max 5 people, ensuring you have more one to one time from our tutors and allowing us more space for social distancing.
