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, email@example.com. The Museum is located at 14 High Street, Ludlow, VT.
