Ely, the last great pure experience!

Bent Willow Chair demo

April 13, 2018 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Come and learn about the making of a one-of-a-kind Bent Willow Chair. This furniture has 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 few 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 to complete your unique chair.

John is offering a class on Satuday and Sunday, April 14th and 15th in which you create your own chair.
