Rustic Stool Woodworking course

 

Relax and spend a day in the mindful experience of learning the traditional skills of 'Bodgers' (skilled woodworkers who used green timber) under the guidance of master craftsman Tommy Kelly from Bevel Furniture / Bevel Woodworking School

With over 35 years of experience in crafting wood Tommy will guide you through making your very own stool from a log of Irish Ash.

The course which runs throughout the day will give students the ability to create their own stool traditionally used for milking cows, using age-old tools like the froe, beetle and drawknife. These tools were utilised by the 'Bodgers' for hundreds of years.

Students will have the use of your own personal shavehorse for the day and take home a rustic solid ash stool made by themselves.

This is a very worthwhile experience for anyone who would like to make something with their hands, with no previous experience necessary.

€85 per person (Hand tools & materials Included)
