Trabalho em Madeira Verde
*Price per person

Serra da Lousã

The Green Woodworking Workshop is two-day introduction to the technique of green woodworking by making your own stool - simple in design and emphasising the beauty of our raw material from the forest surrounding Cerdeira Home For Creativity.

Tutored by Peter Lanyon, you will learn how to handle the different hand tools to prepare the various pieces that make up your work and at the end join them together and take home a new piece of furniture.

This year, we will have a third day, specially dedicated to learn how to sharpen and maintain your tools. Well sharpende and cared tool are fundamental to the success of our work. If you have some good old chisels at home you want to bring back to life, just bring them with you!

Peter Lanyon
Peter Lanyon
Peter Lanyon's work brings together the skill, tools and innovation of a modern furniture maker combined with the old tradition of "bodging" (working green wood), where nothing is straight or predictable. The designer likes to combine green wood with modern materials and techniques that bring something new to the world of custom-made furniture.

Lanyon works primarily with local cut wood and fallen trees. Its philosophy is that of minimal intervention - imposing as little as possible on the materials and leaving the curves as smooth as nature itself created them.
