Folk School Class: Bent Willow Chair Demonstration

February 4 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

$10
rustic chair

 

Win a Chair! One-of-a-kind Bent Willow chairs have long been made by country people, using the beautiful variety of materials collected in the forest. The bending quality and flexible strength of willow makes for easy construction of a comfortable, strong chair with minimal tools. A couple hours of demonstration on materials collection and the use of simple tools, and you’ll be ready to go collect your materials, then return for a one-day class (scheduled for Spring) to complete your unique chair. You could be the lucky participant who wins the drawing and can take home the chair that was built in class.

Instructor: John Bajda
Saturday, February 4, 10:00am – 12:00pm 
Tuition: $10 

John Bajda is a retired High School teacher and has been teaching Rustic Furniture building through his local community ed program for the past 15 years.
