All of my 2019 classes are full.

I occasionally get cancellations so please email me if you would like to be added to my waiting list.

David Douyard also teaches classes at his shop in Connecticut. His classes mirror mine very closely and use the same class manuals that I have written and illustrated. Check his website for details.


  • 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.
