Traditional Seat Caning For the Vintage Chair

Course Overview

Bring your worn-out​ ​cane seat chair to class and learn the nearly lost art of traditional, seven-step method chair seat weaving commonly known as "hole-to-hole caning." Whether a family heirloom chair or the one you picked up at the antique store that needs a little TLC, vintage chairs that need​ ​new seats are welcome, tailored to your specific project. During the course, you'll have ample time, instruction, and all the tools required to restore your vintage chair by weaving the seat back to its original condition. Chairs must have predrilled holes around the perimeter of the seat and be in good​ ​structural ​condition (not in need of re-gluing or refinishing). Each student must consult with the instructor ​immediately ​after registration t​o assess the chair's needs. If you don't have a chair to ​use​, a limited number are available for purchase from the instructor.
