Evening classes have just restarted. There are Upholstery sessions on Mondays and Tuesdays, Restore/Upcycle on Mondays and Cabinetmaking on Wednesdays and Thursdays, all 6.30 to 9.30pm. There are a few places left, and we can do a pro-rata for the rest of the term. Have a look here.
Our next Upholstery Taster Weekend is May 18th and 19th. It's for beginners, as you might expect, and offers an introduction to techniques and materials. And there will be another one on July 6th and 7th.
We have found a date for the Martino Gamper inspired Deconstruct/Reconstruct session, in which we will scavenge old furniture components and reconfigure them into new functional and sculptural forms. Saturday and Sunday, 25th and 26th May, 10.00 to 5.00. We can help with skills and practicability, but you will need to bring your creativity and imagination, and some materials if you can. We're excited about this, and hope you will be too. Read more and book here.
We are doing two weekends of rushing and caning 15th and 22nd June. You will probably need to do both sessions to get a whole chair done, or you might want to spend one weekend doing rushing and one weekend doing caning, and then finish off at home what you haven't managed to do in the class.
This summer we are putting on several five day intensive courses, including one on Cabinetmaking, two on Upholstery (one in July and another in September), and probably a five day facility session in the studio for anything who wants to do anything. Some are on the website and bookable, others not there yet, but they will be.
Short of gift ideas? Look no further! We are offering School of Stuff gift vouchers now. Have a look here.
