Bent wiillow Chair Demo

Come and learn about the making of a one-of-a-kind Bent Willow Chair. This furniture has long been made by country people, using the beautiful variety of materials collected in the forest. The bending quality and flexible strength of willow makes for easy construction of a comfortable, strong chair, with minimal tools. A few hours of demonstration on materials, collection and the use of simple tools, and you'll be ready to go collect your materials then return for a one-day class to complete your unique chair. 

John is offering a class on Sunday, April 14 in which you create your own chair.

About the Instructor: John Bajda is a retired high school teacher and has been teaching Rustic Furniture building through his local community ed program for the past 15 years.
