Spend two and a half days of relaxing antler basket weaving with instructor Cathryn Peters, learn the ins and outs and tricks of the trade for creating a deer antler wall pocket basket of your very own!

Antlers will be pre-drilled with primary ribs inserted,
but you’ll do all the creative and hard work yourself! We’ll also do some hands-on drilling and design planning before weaving starts.

AUGUST

TRADITIONAL PAPE RUSH SEAT WEAVIN

~~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.

OCTOBER

 

HAND-TWISTED CATTAIL RUSH FOOTSTOOL

~~OCTOBER 1-2, 2016 ~~

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 footstool. Prior paper rush weaving is a plus, but not mandetory. Students are welcome to bring your own post and rail chair for help and advice about weaving it at home.
