CHAIR CANING WORKSHOP

SATURDAY, AUGUST 2nd

10 AM TO 4 PM

 

The Black River Academy Museum will hold a chair caning workshop on Sat., Aug. 2nd from 10 AM to 4 PM at the Museum.  The class will be taught by the museum’s Director, Georgia Brehm and the Assistant Director, Linda Tucker, both expert caners.  The fee is $60.00 per person and it includes caning materials for the chair.

The craft of chair caning was brought to the Northeast with the arrival of the Colonists who preferred the bark of black or brown ash.  Today rattan is the most common caning material and rattan will be used in the workshop.  To register, please call 802-228-5050 or email, glbrehm@tds.net. The Museum is located at 14 High Street, Ludlow, VT.   Participants need to bring a chair without its seat, scissors, large towel to set chair on, small sponge or cloth, small bucket to soak the cane and a bag lunch.

Learn a new skill or rekindle a old interest.  Class size is limited, so please register promptly.
