MAKE: Furniture Build Workshop led by Rebecca Sainsot-Reynolds

Learn to build modular furniture shapes from shop bought materials!

Come and learn a modular making method!

A family friendly workshop for anyone interested, recommended for kids aged 8+ , teens and adults.

The technique is a simple ‘modular’ construction method, derived from the architects designs in the 1976 book ‘Instant Furniture’ for the home, a toolkit for making domestic furniture as a non-carpenter, using off the shelf timbers. You’ll get an introduction to the design and its adaptability, how to choose and order off the shelf timbers, and a worksheet so you can try yourself at home!

We will learn to use a set of hand tools and electric drills, to perform basic assembly techniques so that together we can build Turf Projects new gallery benches on wheels! There will be smaller pieces for you to assemble and take home.
