Post and Rung Stool Class (For Women & Non-binary Makers) Feb. 4,11,18,25 6:00-9:00
We sit every day. In this once weekly, 4 time course students will each build a traditional post and rung stool as we explore aspects of chair making. Learn how to shape and shave stool parts out of green wood. Use mortise and tenon joinery to bring your stool to life. Additionally, we'll explore different seat weaving patterns and use traditional shaker tape to weave a beautiful pattern for your seat. And of course, we'll sit. As any good chairmaker says, a chair is never finished until you sit on it.
