Seatweaving Week

John C Campbell Folk School

Give your favorite old chair or stool life and usefulness, and have a great time weaving a new seat. We'll use laced cane, pressed cane, binder cane, reed splints, and Shaker tape to resurrect our chosen furniture. Beginning and intermediate students can expect to complete one to five projects. Chairs and stools should be clean and in good repair prior to class.
