Learn to select and use the natural forms in Privet sticks, and shape a comfortable seat. Create a one-of piece of furniture that will stand out in any room. Prior experience in rustic/green woodworking recommended.  

Meet your tutor

Andrew MacDonald worked as a furniture maker before studying sculpture. 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. Andrew's metal sculpture can be seen at various locations around Toowoomba and Brisbane.
