Craft a fold shelf with Manner Furniture


Join local designer and craftsperson Mark Lilly from Manner Furniture for this special edition workshop. Learn how to create your own 'fold' shelf over three considered classes.

Mark's signature design was a 2019 VIVID Design Awards finalist in Object Design category and plays with the idea of timber looking as malleable as paper, deriving function from appearing to fold back from the wall. The shelf can be flipped and used upside down by unscrewing the keyhole brackets on the back of the shelf and rotating.

You'll be able to choose from American Oak, Jarrah or Walnut for your shelf.

All tools, materials and light morning tea will be provided for each session. 
There are no previous skills required, simply bring your authentic self.

Each class has limited seats, only 4 people per workshop. 


  • 3 sessions in the warehouse learning from Mark Lilly from Manner Furniture

  • The skills and confidence to continue making
