The classes for 2016 are full.

To add your name to a waiting list for 2016 classes please send me an e-mail and I will contact you in the event of a cancellation.

I will announce the 2017 schedule sometime in the fall of 2016. If you would like me to contact you when the schedule is available please send me an email or subscribe to Chairmaker’s Journal.

  • The introductory classes are 6 days long. In this time students shape all parts, assemble the chair, and weave the seat.
  • Because of the complexity of the Rocking Chair, 6 days are needed to shape the parts and assemble the chair. An optional 7th day is offered for seat weaving.
  • Each class is limited to 3 students.
  • To take the Rocking Chair Class you must first complete one of the introductory classes or have taken a class with Brian in the past.
