Orkney Chairs

I wanted to explore how some of the techniques learnt at the master class have traditionally been utilised in crafting furniture. Here are some examples of Orkney chairs made from oat straw and drift wood by The Orkney Hand Crafted Furniture Company. On their website you can watch videos of various stages of the crafting of these wonderful pieces of furniture.


  1. I wanted one of these as a souvenir of my trip to Orkney but it wouldnt fit in my rucksack. They are amazing and so practical for keeping breezes at bay and providing a cozy place to knit. What more could you need. Lets go to Orkney Hazel.
