ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: If you need a gift for Christmas you should join Alexander Berchert little woodwork class and make a lovely wooden chest to keep or give away. The class will run for 2 hours and cover all tools and materials, including fancy woods like oak, walnut, teak and pine. Along the way you will learn how to join, sand, stain and wax your box to a superb finish. 
Come down for a Christmassy afternoon filled with craft, cookies and mulled wine.

Berchert is fascinated by physics and the human ingenuity behind mechanics and mass-produced objects. He channels this energy through his vibrant and engaging kinetic sculptures. As an emerging Artist, he has taken part in several prominent exhibitions, including Kinetica, Daniel Pooles’s Curiosity Shop, Kinetica Fundraiser at Village Underground and many more.

Berchert is also a trained picture frame maker and has a strong passion for craft and fine woodwork, which becomes apparent in his most recent works, mixing traditional materials and techniques with playful intent and interactivity.
