Make North Docks: Greenwood Woodwork – Stool Making
Venue: Make Liverpool
Dates: 01/02/2020 - 08/02/2020
Times: 09:00 - 17:00
Over the space of two days, Keith, our resident woodworking guru, will carefully teach you the techniques and skills involved in the art of green woodwork. The result of this intensive two day workshop will be a beautiful handmade stool. There will be a chance to talk through the process before the tools get brought out to discuss personal preference and design with an opportunity to ask questions. These stools make gorgeous gifts, a perfect perch to sip your coffee on or simply great practise if you’re looking to develop your skills as a green woodworker.
You will build your stool from scratch using a variety of edge tools. Starting with a piece of freshly chopped wood, you will learn how to cleave the wood with froes and wedges, then move onto shape it on the shaving horse with drawknife and spokeshave. The legs of your stool will then be attached using wedged-tenons.
