Caning Workshop with Rachael South
Tue 9 May 2017, 10:00 – 17:00 BST
Chair caning can be a great addition to any upholstery/restoration practise.
Suitable for beginners this one day class will be an opportunity for upholsterers to learn the traditional 6 way woven pattern to a professional standard. You'll complete all 6 stages (the whole process) on a small practise frame in one day. As well as learning 6 way pattern Rachael will also get an overview of the materials and history of the craft and its applications.
Rachael is a third generation caner and seatweaver, taught by her father who learned from his father.
Practise frames to take away, materials and tools are provided.
