|Course:||Egg Carriers for Easter|
|Start Date:||13th April 2019|
|Fee:||£55.00 What's included?|
Spend a day handcrafting your own shaker egg carrier. During the day you will make a pair of egg carriers, one for half a dozen eggs and one for a dozen eggs. The carriers will be made from locally sourced English Ash and can be painted or left plain. If the paint is not quite dry, final sealing can be completed at home. Everyone is welcome as no previous woodworking experience is necessary and you will be working in pairs.
All tools and materials will be provided and a charge of £20 will be 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
