Make a folding table

Saturday 25 - Sunday 26 July 2020


The course

Starting with sawn boards for the table top and materials for the leg structure, each student will design and create their own individual table. Styles and sizes will vary depending on the maker and the intended use and location of the table. No previous experience necessary, although attendance of other green wood working courses may be helpful.

The tutor

With a background in woodwork, woodlands and music Mervyn is an independent demonstrator, maker and tutor covering over twenty years of research and study.

Woodland management provides the raw materials that traditional skills and techniques then convert into items of use.  In particular Mervyn creates chairs from historic designs and a small number of musical instruments.

He is very keen to involve others and help them to learn and appreciate the potential of native woodlands and the traditional methods which can be used to make aesthetic quality products for themselves.
