CANCELLED – Bim Willow Furniture Workshop

August 26, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

The Bim Willow Furniture Workshop has been CANCELLED for this year and will not be rescheduled. We apologize for the inconvenience. 

Come learn how to create a stunning piece of furniture with natural materials. Many of the pieces to choose from are historic Americana designs. Noted furniture builder Bim Willow will teach you how to create your one-of-a-kind table, chair, bench, or other furniture piece from start to finish. Completed projects will be ready to take home within the times estimated, which are based on no building experience.

Students are required to bring a hammer (8 oz is best for willow working; 16 oz hammer to build the frame) and pruning shears. A limited number of loppers and wire cutters will be available to share, but students should bring theirs if they have them. The piece of furniture you build will determine if you will have a morning or afternoon session. See worksheet below for available styles, prices and class times.

Class must be booked in advance. Students are required to choose their project no later than one week before class so the appropriate materials can be collected. Class sizes are limited.
