Join Andrew MacDonald, Wood and Metal Artisan, for a weekend of creating rustic furniture from branches and sticks. This workshop will introduce you to suitable pest variety timbers for basic chair, stool and table making, the tools and techniques to work the materials, options for design of your own pieces, and you will make your own piece of furniture to take home!

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.
