Stick Furniture Workshops

Work with pest varieties of wood to create wonderfully unique pieces for your home.

Making rustic furniture from branches and sticks is an old practice, usually associated with making do, and the simple life. It is also a very creative and practical way to use larger garden cuttings, as well as pest varieties such as camphor laurel and privet, that would otherwise be thrown away.

Meet your tutor

Andrew MacDonald worked as a furniture maker before studying sculpture and his art practice combines the practical knowledge and skills of a tradesman with originality and creative design. He has exhibited his pieces in galleries throughout the world. Many of the tools Andrew uses are traditional ones, rarely seen in modern workshops, which he has even forged and made himself.
