Photo: PHIL BARNES Unique driftwood seats fit for a king By PHIL BARNES Creative couple offer classes ' And there's a lot more work in getting the wood to fit together, and to also look aesthetic, than you would think. ' Michelle Kingsford Stoke couple Adrian and Michelle Kingsford have been making chairs out of driftwood for several months and are keen to run a course to teach others how to do it. Michelle said they would like to run the course because it would bring like-minded people together and because there was more involved in making the chairs well than people realised. The first thing would be for people to come with us to collect the driftwood themselves, because it's quite important that they choose the wood they like.'' She said some things were only learned with experience. For example, they learned from feedback from other people who tried out their chairs that the leg height of a chair was important to whoever was sit- ting on it. And there's a lot more work in getting the wood to fit together, and to also look aes- thetic, than you would think.'' Michelle said people didn't always want the chairs to sit on. Some people want to use them as a garden ornament and to put pot plants on them.'' The couple were married last year but have known each other since childhood. We both used to live in Toss- will Rd when we were kids and I used to be good friends with Michelle's brother,'' Adrian said. The chairs are part of several activities the Kingsfords are involved with. We are both finishing writing our first novels and we also write massive amounts of poetry,'' Adrian said. They have sold poems at mar- kets. They print and sometimes illustrate some of their work and and if someone wants a particu- lar poem, they put it in a frame. Michelle also makes macrame jewellery. Anyone interested in drift- wood chairs can contact Adrian or Michelle on 547 0136.
