Anneka made a little stool with wych elm bark seat as well as an unfortunate trip to A&E after poking herself in the eye pulling out a tenon. Ouch!
This week we also had a happy couple celebrating their 25th Wedding Anniversary, for which Jo (the cook) dressed the table in a traditional Portuguese style with ferns and woodland flowers.
Hanging above them she made a willow heart decorated with flowers too. Cake and gooseberry fool was eaten!
So lastly, a few snaps of the finished chairs and benches.
Colin with his very substantial ladder back and slatted seat chair.
Also Deborah one of the Clissett Wood owners made a hooped back windsor style chair.
Lastly here is a picture of my final bowls from the week, oiled up and fully warped. The eucalyptus is getting quite an orange glow about it now.
Thank you to such a great group on this course.
My ribs were aching from laughing too much!
