|Chair Making School Is Now Accepting Students!|
If you or a loved one ever wanted to see how it was done in the good ol' days, please read on.
Greg Harkins is one of the best and most renowned chair makers of our time and he wants to share his craft with as many people as he can. His chairs are owned by many U.S. presidents, governors, congressmen, and celebrities so he must be doing something right for all these famous folks buying his chairs.Greg teaches the techniques of woodworking that goes back as far as the mid 1800’s. Every tree he uses is hand picked, every piece hand turned, and every seat hand woven. He even signs and dates every piece and guarantees it for life and that is what he wants to teach others.
Greg offers a truly unique experience in his classes that allows the student to work on their own chair using the the same steps that were followed over 200 years ago. Greg was taught by an old master and now would like to share with others what he has been blessed with being able to do for the past 30 years of his life. The whole process of making a chair takes about 25 hours. That means if you sign up for a class be ready to get to work and it ain't gonna take an afternoon.
As you can see the shop is big! We can fit a good number of people in here and do a great demonstration. When we do a class it is a usually no more than 4 people as to keep the class size manageable and everyone get the personal attention they deserve.
