About Greenwood Days
Rustic/bent wood furniture.
Making willow chairs is a traditional greenwood craft bought up to date using modern tools and fastenings.
Spencer Jenkins is your course tutor who’s been creating stunning designs in willow and hazel for more than fifteen years. His work can be seen around the country in galleries, private estates and public places. He created the stunning willow arches for the Queen in Windsor Great Park and the album cover for Black Sabbath’s latest album!
The course will take you through the stages of designing and creating a simple garden chair using willow and hazel in its unseasoned (green) state.
You’ll use a selection of tools including saws, loppers, hammer, nails and a cordless drill.
