Bodging Milano 2 – 29 June – 5 July 2012
Following the success of the Bodging Milano project in 2010, in which nine designers went back to basics and made a collection of greenwood chairs in the ash woods of deepest Herefordshire, collaborators Rory Dodd and Chris Eckersley have put together an exciting new team of prospective ‘bodgers’ for a return visit to Hereford at the end of this month.
