Join us to mark Circular Economy Week, and spend an evening making a hanging planter from wood upcycled from a felled London tree by Saunders Seasonings. You’ll be shown how to use key woodwork machinery including the Chop saw, Bandsaw, Router table and Pilar drill to craft a beautiful planter to hang in your home, sanded and oiled to preserve for the future.
Over 5,000 trees are felled in London every year, and most are simply chipped and burned. Saunders Seasonings (based at the workshop) upcycles felled London trees into quality hardwood, enabling furniture makers and designers to craft beautiful, low carbon products people can cherish for generations.
This course will be led by Christina French who trained in carpentry and bench joinery at the Building Crafts College in Stratford. She is based at Blackhorse Workshop and undertakes commissions for freestanding and fitted furniture using locally sourced timber.
Saunders Seasonings are an award-winning timber business based in London and Essex, producing London-sourced low carbon hardwoods for businesses, makers and designers big and small. Most of their timber comes from trees felled in and around London; trees that would otherwise be chipped and burned. Instead, they recycle and repurpose them, giving them a second life and ensuring the carbon stays in the wood.
