Cattail leaves used for rush seatweaving.

Have you ever woven a natural cattail leaf chair seat? It’s an age-old craft that not too many seat weavers practice anymore, but is very rewarding, fun to do and can be quite lukrative because its so rarely done here in this day and age.

On a fairly regular basis, I teach hand-twisted cattail leaf rush seat weaving to make sure the craft is not lost on our next generations.

And also demonstrate the craft at local historical societies functions, pioneer days events, city centennial celebrations, art & craft shows, through The SeatWeavers’ Guild, Inc. at our Annual Gatherings and other rustic-type or historical re-enactments.
