Last week saw the second full 'Make A Chair From A Tree' five-day course and I think I can say for sure that a great time was had by all. And, in contrast to the last time we ran this one, we finished all 10 of the chairs just a couple of hours after 5.00 on Friday, a big improvement! It was all quite (nicely) emotional at the end, with some justifiably proud guests.
Of the 10 guests we had six campers who had to endure some pretty torrential rain storms but in the true spirit of camping they still managed to enjoy themselves (with most of them ending up in the tipi for shelter I think). It must be said the Woodland Workshop's hot shower was put through its paces after the storms subsided.
I must say spending a week making a chair from a tree seems to be a particularly wonderful way to spend time ... and if it appeals then don't forget the new course dates we've added for this year - there are still some places.
