Caning: Footstool Workshop

October 8, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


The finest chairs produced by the Enfield Shakers in NH were a mid-19th century example with cane seats. Instructor Jean Reed of Murray Hill Weaving in New Hampshire will teach the basic 7 steps of caning on a beautifully handcrafted footstool made of hardwood and satin finish. After completing this workshop, you can apply your newly learned skills to those chairs that you’ve been saving at home in the barn or attic. Handmade footstool frame and all materials are included– just come ready to learn! Please note: your caning may or may not be finished during the workshop session but a full demonstration and instruction will be given to ensure you can finish your project at home. Class size: 10.
