What ‘wood’ we do without wood? With our long history of furniture making courses, alot gets  used  at London Met, and we especially love chairs! Did you know we host The Frederick Parker Collection (housed in the Special Collections)? The Frederick Parker Collection is a unique and outstanding educational resource spanning over 300 years of British furniture making and design, from 1660 to the present day. The collection comprises over 200 chairs, together with an archive of related historical documents and artefacts. Find out more about the collection here.

If you’re a wood or chair enthusiast  be sure to visit the exhibition Material: Wood currently on at Messums Wiltshire, with a focus on chair design it’s right up our street!
As well as lots of lovely books Aldgate Library also has a Materials and Products Collection, and we have put together a selection on a wood based theme for display, including some amazing bark cloth.
