Clearing the workshop

The day is dawning.........the workshop demolition starts on the 3rd July! This weekend everything must be emptied ready for the disc cutters and sledgehammers to move in.

Because of the shows we have quite a few jobs nearly but not quite finished, so the main task has been to get on with the job and get as much of our client work done and sent home as we can. Today I sealed eight rush seats that we finished weaving just before the Three Counties Show.

Tomorrow I'll be trying to get on with one of a pair of childrens chairs that was started at the shows. They will take a very long time because they are being fully restored and have "close woven" diamond design seats.

This photo was taken at the weekend just after stripping out the old seat, but before cleaning and re-gluing. At least they are tiny little chairs that don't take up a lot of space!
