12 – 13 Dec: Highland Stool Making with Aaron Sterritt

Highland Stool Making Course

Come and spend a relaxing weekend in the workshop creating a piece of handmade furniture. You will learn a wide range of traditional "Green Woodworking" techniques. 

Using hand tools and locally sourced hardwood you will be guided through the process of making your very own stool.

This course is slightly different from the main summer course. We will be working in an inside environment and although we won't be surrounded by beautiful woodlands, you will get the opportunity to pay a little more attention to detail in the finishing stages of your stool.
