What can you do with an ordinary chrome & wood chair?



The sky’s the limit in this one day workshop

Each chair tells its own story which evolves, twists and turns throughout the day culminating in a unique and fantastic visual creation.


Everyone starts with a humble chair



creates a fantasy chair

(These are some from recognised designers:

All materials are supplied and we have aprons too; but to be on the safe side, wear your artists’ clothes!
