Shaker Stools 2.0
June 14, 2020 – June 20, 2020
In this workshop students will be adapting the classic shaker stool design to make it their own. You will be learning about and building on the inherent strengths found in the traditional design and modifying it using modern technology to bring it into the 21st century. Participants will design and build a stool using lathe and bandsaw techniques that will allow for maximum creativity and innovation. You will experiment with surface texture and painting and finishing techniques before finally learning how to weave a stylish and comfortable seat on your groundbreaking creation. Open to all skill levels.
