Peter Galbert Chairmaker


Classes in Chairmaking

In 2014, I will be expanding my teaching at home and introducing a new class format. In an attempt to accomodate the demand for instruction, I will be offering classes with 6 students. It will be an action packed week that will be a great introduction to chairmaking or a chance to polish your skills. The tuition is $1150 for the 6 day workshop (materials included). Please contact me for class dates, project and registration information.

I can also schedule two person classes at my workshop for $1500 per student. You can work with a friend or I can schedule you with another student.

I also offer individual courses in chairmaking at my workshop in Sterling, Massachusetts. This course is intended for the experienced or advanced woodworker looking to hone their chairmaking skills. During the six day seminar, the student will make a windsor chair from log to assembly and leave withan heirloom quality chair. Tuition for the one on one sackback or continuous arm class is $1950. Spaces are limited, early registration is encouraged. Please call for my current schedule and to discuss whether this course is right for you.
