Ishinomaki Small Furniture Making

Make your own small furniture inspired by the Ishinomaki stool. With the guidance of 2 carpenters from Lamana and Craft MNL’s resident woodworker, you can build your own side table, stool, step up, etc. using off cuts discarded from larger furniture pieces. With specific parameters, learn how to conceptualize, design, build and finish (basic) your intended furniture item.

The workshop fee per participant is P 5,000.

About the Facilitator
Ishinomaki Laboratory  was founded as a workshop for locals in an area of Japan most devastated by the tsunami in March 2011. Carrying over the spirit of DIY, they restored local stores and held workshops (including one in Bohol after the 2013 earthquake). With straightforward and thoughtful designs grounded in necessity, Ishinomaki Laboratory has gone beyond the local community and expanded its reach as a respected furniture brand to New York, London, Zurich, Lausanne, Singapore, Hong Kong and now Manila.  
With Ishinomaki Laboratory’s desire to empower local communities, they have created an initiative called Made in Local in which local craftsmen in Manila will manufacture their designs. LAMANA is the exclusive PH partner of Ishinomaki Laboratory, and through the Made in Local initiative, Ishinomaki Laboratory pieces are proudly Philippine-made upheld by the brand’s impeccable standards.
