Chair caning is a traditional craft dating back to the 1700s (in London). It is also an interesting and rewarding one. Let’s keep it going!
As a practicing chair-caner I would like to pass on the basic skills to a few other people and to assist them in progressing, with the right tools and training opportunities, to take on client projects if they are inclined to.
This is the first session to ‘get started’. Further half or full-day sessions can be planned for a mutually agreeable date.
Have you a chair or stool which needs reweaving? Advice on how to start your project will also be available.
