Green Wood Chair Making with Anders Lindberg

Course Overview

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.
