  • 5 hours

Learn the craft of traditional súgán stool making, with ‘mortice and tenon’ joints (no nails!) and then seat the chair using a rope pattern for the seat. ‘Súgán’ is the Irish word for straw-rope. Súgán stools were found in most traditional Irish homes, especially in rural parts where they would have been skilfully produced by a local craftsman. Bring your own súgán stool home at the end of the day!
