|Course:||Make A Wooden Carrier|
|Start Date:||28th June 2018|
|Fee:||£54.00 What's included?|
Spend a day handcrafting your own individual wooden carrier. During the day you can choose to make either a swing handle carrier (the classic sewing or project box), or a pair of egg carriers (half dozen and one dozen). All are welcome as no previous woodworking experience is necessary as you will be working in pairs.
There will be an additional charge of £20 for materials payable to the tutor on the day.
Having a very fulfilling career in engineering Richard Gibson realised that he would need something to occupy and engage him. He had always admired the simplicity and beauty of Shaker design and found a course on making their iconic oval boxes at the American Museum in Bath some 18 years ago. From that point on he was captivated and has been making traditional boxes in English hardwoods and developing designs based on the same techniques ever since.Back to List
