Building a Bamboo Stool
Join multi-talented interior & product designer and craftsman, Rahim Ismail in building your very own stool from bamboo and rattan.
In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to build your very own stool from scratch using bamboo, along with simple rattan weaving techniques. There are a number of high-quality bamboo species in Malaysia such as Betong, Beting, Semantan, Akar, Aur and more. A great alternative to hardwood, bamboo is recognized as a more sustainable renewable resource in comparison to hard wood, as it grows much faster, regenerates quickly, and doesn’t need as much nutrients, amongst other things.
With over 20 years of experience in Interior Design, 10 years in Bamboo & Rattan Product Design, as well as 6 years in Architecture Draughtsmanship, Rahim Ismail is a veteran bamboo craftsman. Recognizing Bamboo and Rattan as valuable Malaysian resources, and the craftsmanship behind all of it as a heritage that needs to be preserved, he has been a great champion of products made from these materials and aims with share his knowledge to promote the many benefits of a great natural Malaysian resource.
