Handwoven Chair Caning
November 8, 2020 – November 14, 2020
During this workshop students will discover the art and beauty of the handwoven chair caning craft. In addition to helping to revive what has been called “a dying craft,” you will rejuvenate your antique chair into an honored family heirloom for your home. During class, beginners will learn the seven-step traditional chair caning method while advanced students will expand their knowledge with more complicated patterns, such as the daisy pattern. Moderate hand strength is required, and no recent shoulder, arm, or hand injuries are recommended.
COURSE FEE: $675
