Weekend course

Let's hope the weather will be nice enough to do this outside.  We will teach you this ancient technique for making an attractive, resilient and hardwearing but comfortable seat.  You will use rushes cut from wetlands in East Anglia, which are twisted and wound around the frame to create a traditionally shaped seat. You can bring your own chair for this project but if you don’t have one we can provide one.  Course fee of £185.00 includes the cost of the rushes.  Book the next weekend session here.
