Llanspyddid, Powys - Bus Stop Chair

Here's a chair I fished out of a skip, now available for travellers at a bus stop on the A40 half way between Llanspyddid and the Cwm Camlais turnoff.

I painted the chair and covered it in a nylon offcut from a 1970's curtain.

I added this grotesque character to offset the rather 'Auntie Norah' upholstery.

Organic Wool Wales Project

I was asked to contribute to the Organic Wool Wales Project and decided to re-upholster a 1960's mini-chair. Here's a daft little film of the chair from start to finish:


The woolen fabric is not strictly upholstery weight, but worked very well on this little chair.

The chair will be on show at the Wonder Wool Wales show in Builth Wells later this month.
