All 2018 classes are full.

I occasionally get cancellations. If you would like to be added to my waiting list please send me an email

I will post my 2019 class schedule on October 25, 2018 and will be begin taking reservations on November 1, 2018, 10p.m. Eastern.

In 2018 David Douyard will also be teaching the Introductory Post & Rung Side Chair Class, the Introductory Arm Chair Class, and the Rocking Chair Class at his shop in Connecticut. His classes mirror mine very closely and use the same class manual that I wrote and illustrated. Check here for his schedule.


  • All classes are 7 days long, Sunday through Saturday.
  • Students shape all parts, assemble the chair, weave the seat, and go home with a finished chair.
  • Each class is limited to 3 students.
  • To take any of the advanced classes — Classic Side Chair, Classic Bar Stool, or Rocking Chair — you must first complete one of the introductory classes with me or David Douyard, or have taken a class with Brian in the past.
