“The construction of stick chairs is as basic as it gets. Small sections of hedgerow timber are banged into a plank seat, creating a low-cost article that can stand daily use and be easily repaired.”
This talk will trace the development of the stick chair in Wales from the medieval period through to the present, and look at the cultural and craft context in which this versatile form flourished. Richard Bebb is an Honorary Research Fellow at National Museum Wales.
