Happy New Year 2018

Twelve months have passed since my last Blog, I definitely did not stick to my NY resolutions! I must do better this year…
Last March I fell over and fractured my hip and spent the next 6 months trying to recover. I actually fell over the day my new book “Green Wood Stools”, arrived from the Publishers. I managed to open the box and grab a copy to take with me in the ambulance!
Chair making Courses did not begin until July,  I managed to get through the days by swallowing lots of painkillers and sitting down teaching – nightmare!
Anyway I have no plans for breaking bones this year and have a few courses arranged for May, June and July which I am looking forward to. I already have 300 hazel sticks outside my workshop, waiting to be made into chairs, can’t wait to get started.
In addition, I am planning on making a new Limited Edition Collection of upholstered armchairs this year although not sure about the fabric yet. Look out for photos on the Gallery pages later in the year!
