TRADITIONAL PAPER FIBRE RUSH SEAT WEAVING

~~AUGUST 20-21, 2016 ~~

Have you ever wondered how those seats are woven, you know the ones, with the four triangular sections that meet in the center? Maybe you have a set of chairs like this and want to fix them, but don’t know where to start?

Well, now you can reweave the rush seat and pick up skills to maybe even go into a sideline business of chair seat weaving! Take Cathryn’s class and learn a new craft, become a chair seat weaver in no time. Don’t have a chair to bring to class? Then purchase one from instructor and you’re all set.

Join Cathryn to learn this rarely taught, age-old traditional rush seat pattern using locally harvested natural cattail leaves, the “goods from the swamp”. In this two-day class, we will be hand-twisting the rush into a rope and weaving on a prepared footstool. Prior paper rush weaving is a plus, but not mandatory. Students are welcome to bring your own post and rail chair for help and advice about weaving the seat of your chair at home.
