Traditional Rustic Wooden Stool Workshop

About the event

“Using traditional tools to shape green (unseasoned) wood is a pleasure that is hard to match. The beauty of green wood lies in its ability to be shaped easily as it is soft and easily worked with hand tools”.

Stephen Ryan from Green Woodwork Ireland will teach you the skills needed to make your own piece of furniture in the form of a small rustic bench, encompassing the use of the shave horse and a variety of hand tools including the drawknife, auger drill and spoke shave. Aimed at the complete novice or those with some experience, this course is suitable to people both young and old.

Tools, equipment and refreshments provided.

Suitable Age 16+

This event is part of the Market Place Theatre and Arts Centre Summer Season Workshop Programme.
