Do you love learning new crafts and weaving techniques? Have you always wanted to learn the age-old traditional handcraft of chair caning? Well, here’s your chance with this lovely little 8” square wooden starter board frame that can be used as a trivet for plants, etc., or hung on the wall as an art piece!
Students will learn the basic hole-to-hole hand chair caning techniques, my no-knot method of tying off ends, and how to “sew” on the final finishing binder cord, plus tons of tips and tricks of the trade and a little bit of chair caning history.
Materials supplied: Predrilled, unfinished 8″ square wooden frame, weaving cane, binder cane, 6 caning pegs and instruction pattern. *You may paint or stain trivet frame, just make sure it’s dry before class time.
Tools needed: Shallow bowl for soaking cane, scissors, awl or ice pick, spray bottle, towel, (and if you have one of the following, bring it to class to aide in the weaving process) *long blade weaving tool, *flat barbecue skewer or *small diameter knitting needle
Note for Students: It’s best if you have two devices connected to the Zoom app for class. One should be turned on showing your face, (desktop, laptop or tablet) and a separate camera, such as a phone, to show your weaving project area. When entering with your work space phone, be sure to turn OFF the audio, otherwise there will be a loud echo. At the beginning of my class, I will also mention a few housekeeping measures so the class will go smoothly.
