Construa a sua Cadeira com Peter Lanyon
*Price per person

Serra da Lousã

From the 8th to the 14th of May, designer Peter Lanyon is at Aldeia do Xisto da Cerdeira where he will teach how to build a free-form chair following your own design.

Throughout the course, participants will learn all the basic techniques of working with green wood, including carving the wood by hand, working the various pieces until they have a beautiful and delicate finish and then putting them together. They will also build their own bench, which will allow them to continue practicing their new art at home.

“Freeform” refers to a style of work that uses irregular, curved pieces of wood. In this course you will learn how to drill and make a perfect joining of these elements. It's a course for people who want to do something unique and personal, something that is an expression of their personality.

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.
