Green Wood Chair Making with Anders Lindberg
North House is excited to welcome Swedish craftsman Anders Lindberg to campus as our featured guest instructor for Unplugged. Anders will teach a classic green woodworking project: this straight-back chair. Students will learn and use a variety of green woodworking skills to create an heirloom piece. With simple tools, students cleave, shape, and fit a combination a green and dry ash wood that allows for a no-glue assembly. Each student will produce a straight back chair with a woven seat of Danish paper cord or seagrass. Some previous experience in green woodworking is helpful but not required.
