The London School of Furniture Making: Nakashima Chair Course

Nakashima Chair Course


LEVEL: Intermediate






It is no secret that here at The London School of Furniture Making we have a bit of a thing for George Nakashima's work. One of his most enduring designs is his 1960's Conoid Chair. We've made a few attempts at our own version of it and we thought you'd like to make one too.

This course is our most demanding class; ideally suited to those who have quite a bit of joinery/furniture making experience and anyone who has completed Core Skills Joinery with us. You'll be working mostly with hand tools but we will also make use of a number of power tools along the way.





Cost: £1195
Days: Monday to Friday
Dates: 15th to 26th July 2019 (exc. Sat/Sun)

* Intermediate level courses are best suited to those of you who have already completed one of our Core Skills Joinery courses or have a good understanding of hand cut joinery. If the words 'face side and face edge' mean nothing to you, then this course is a little above your current ability.


RECOMMENDED READING

If you want to learn more about George Nakashima then look no further than these two books. The first is by George Nakashima in which he talks about his life and influences, and the second is by his daughter Mira Nakashima and it shows the wealth of work that produced by her father in his lifetime. Both books are essential reading for any fan of 20th Century Modern furniture.
