CHAIR WORKSHOP

 

Master Geoffrey will be holding the third of his chair making workshops. The goal of this workshop will be to provide the populace of Meridies with a venue to make a period looking wooden chair that is light weight, and packs down flat for easy transport.

He will be supplying all of the materials, tools, patterns, and know how for you to cut out and fit together a wooden chair. The workshop will run all day long, but will have only two slots open at any given time. The expected amount of time required by each student will be 1.5-2 hours, then the slot will open for the next student who is standing there ready to start. This is not so much a class as it is a workshop, and the goal is assist you in doing the main portion of making your own wooden chair. At the end of your session you will receive instructions on how to sand, stain and seal your chair at your own home.

The cost of this workshop will be $30.  That will cover the cost of all materials, tool use, and the assistance required to produce your new chair. All you will need is $30 and the willingness to take instructions, to put forth a little effort, and 2 hours of your time. At the end you will have a nice chair to set next to the fire in your camp or by the tourney field, and thereby improve the ambiance of our fair kingdom. This is the third of these workshops.  The first was held at Tourney of the Foxes and the second one was held at Red Tower. Click on the links to see the results of those days' efforts.
