Build A Ladderback Chair

July 8 @ 9:00 AM - July 12 @ 5:00 PM

$875

Learn how to make a chair from a tree!  In this class, we’ll build a two-slat ladderback chair in the Appalachian tradition. Over the course of five days, students will start with a log and end with a chair frame ready for seat-weaving. During the course of the class, we’ll talk about and practice greenwoodworking techniques, post and rung joinery, seating ergonomics and steambending. Our main focus will be on hand tools.


Monday-Friday, July 8-12  |  9am – 5pm  |  Class will break for a 1 hour lunch each day.

Cost: $743.75 members; $875 non-members (includes all materials needed to make your own ladderback chair)
What to Bring: Bring a bag lunch, or you may visit nearby downtown Brattleboro to purchase lunch.

Partial and full scholarships are available. Contact education@hatchspace.org for details.
