Make a creepie milking stool

25 February 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4 March 2023 @ 5:30 pm


Stephen Ryan from Green Woodwork Ireland will teach you the skills needed to make your own piece of heirloom furniture to last generations, in the form of a traditional milking stool, otherwise known as a Creepie.

This Two-day workshop encompasses the use of the shave horse and a variety of hand tools including the drawknife, auger drill spokeshave, tenon cutter, travisher, Japanese pull saw and much more.

All tools and materials are supplied. This course is suited to all levels including complete beginners. Due to the use of sharp tools during the class, sturdy boots or shoes should be worn. Workshop times are 10.00am to 5.30pm.

The workshop will be held at the Green Woodwork Ireland Workshop, Minnowburn. Workshops are non-refundable and non-transferable.
