Wood & Weaving Course – Making a stool
During this 4-session course, we will discover the basics of woodworking, as well as the art of natural fiber weaving through the making of a stool!
Diana, cabinetmaker, workshop leader and artisanal weaving enthusiast, will accompany us throughout the making of our stool. For the structure, we will learn how to use the miter saw, the jointer, the planer and the drill press. Then, we’ll use the weaving techniques to make the seat! We will use fique, a natural fiber from a plant of the agave family that is found mainly in Colombia, where it is widely used.
Everyone will leave with their own personalized woven stool!
Skills required: none, except a little patience.
The price includes all necessary materials, lots of advice and finger blisters.
The dates of the sessions are: Saturday May 29 and Sunday May 30, Saturday June 12 and Sunday June 13 – from 10am to 1pm.
