Traditional Paper Fiber Rush Weaving

Course Overview

Most likely you’ve seen this type of weaving done on antique and flea market chairs and always wondered how it was done. In this one-day course you will learn how to weave the rush seat design pattern, which forms four distinct triangular envelope shapes that meet in the center. You will be using a continuous strand of rolled paper rope, a product that was invented in the early 1900s and made to resemble the hand-twisted natural bulrush or cattail leaves found in older chair seats. Instructor will show you the tricks of the trade to speed and improve your weaving process. Take a home a footstool (13” x 11” x 11”) and the knowledge to start new projects on your own.
