For many years the Wycombe area has been famous for its rush seated chairs.
In this class we will learn how to prepare and use English soft rush, harvested from the River Thames, to seat a chair or stool. You will learn to select the rush, to twist it into shape and to create the basic rush seat. The piece of furniture should be square or trapezium shaped and have rough unpolished rails and raised corners.
In all cases students will need to bring their own furniture to work on, although it will be possible to purchase a suitable piece from the Wooburn Craft School. Please contact the school well in advance to discuss your requirements and the suitability of your furniture.
All students should let us know what you want to learn in this class so we can plan appropriately.
