Bent Stick Chair Course Details                                            


Bent stick chairs
(also known as Gypsy Willow chairs) capture peoples imagination with their beautiful and graceful curves and natural looks. Mine are made entirely from sustainably coppiced hazel and will be tailored to your comfort. These chairs are traditionally held together with nails, nailing being an ancient craft in it's own right and are suitable for indoors, summerhouse, conservatory or a sheltered position in the garden. I have designed the Wildwood Bent Stick Chair Jig to help in the making of these chairs, and these will be available to buy during the course. Please ensure you have the means to get your chair home! All courses are suitable for beginners. We are also offering a willow chair seating course this year - see below.
