Take a Seat - Primary

From earliest times seating, with first stools and later chairs, has been important to people, both providing comfort and status. How would you make a chair, what materials would you use, and how would you decorate it?

In the Chair Archive you can find different ways of doing this. You can have a go at a chair game in Make a Chair or discover how Gloucestershire craftsman Paul Spriggs does this in the Chairmaker at Work.
