Meet your hosts, Ana and Ricky, at the Tig na Wig farmhouse and join them on a short walk down to the Green Wood Chairs studio, where the course will take place. The purpose built workshop provides students with the necessary facilities for designing and making chairs, stools and small tables. With only 2 participants per course, everyone benefits from a high level of one-to-one tuition. Courses are suitable for beginners as well as makers with some experience who wish to improve and/or learn new skills. Enjoy a delicious home-made lunch with Ana and Alison at The Wooden House. Continue with your stool or table in the afternoon, then take our recommendation and head out to one of many excellent local restaurants for a well-deserved and satisfying dinner as a reward for your endeavours. After dinner why not enjoy a drink and some live music at one of our many cosy local pubs!
Ana started hosting guests at their London flat through Airbnb in 2011, along with her husband, Ricky, a massage therapist. In 2017 they bought the farmhouse next door to her parents’ home in West Cork and renovated the annexe, which they call ‘The Tigin’, in order to continue hosting Airbnb guests there. To create this experience, Ana is joining forces with her mother, Alison, who is well known in West Cork for her unique and characterful chairs, stools and tables. Alison is an experienced teacher, with students coming from all over the world to experience her intuitive and patient approach.
Lunch All diets catered for.
All woodworking equipment Appropriate safety gear will be provided but participants must wear suitable clothing and footwear.
Tig na Wig Farmhouse will be our base for the duration of the experience, but recommendations can be made for daytrips to locations of interest in the surrounding area. Just a mile and a half outside of town, Rossnagoose is a pretty and peaceful townland overlooking the river Ilen, just outside of the bustling market town and presents an excellent base for exploring West Cork.
