RS Peck offers caning, both handwoven and prewoven, in most patterns including the very difficult double-blind cane technique. I also do woodcarving of reproductions (such as missing sections on furniture and mirror frames) and original pieces.
I owned and operated a furniture restoration business in Racine, Wisconsin for 24 years, prior to closing in 2014. So if your piece needs gluing or repair, as is often required with chairs and rockers, I do provide that service.

East Street Arts is dedicated to fostering the creation of art through artisan training programs, workshops, and community interactions for persons of all abilities.
In our chair caning studio, Association of Artisans to Cane, we provide hands-on learning to artists of all abilities in the craft of seat weaving.
The artists use these skills to restore chairs for community members with oversight from highly trained staff. Each artist has the opportunity to learn various forms of seat weaving, including hand cane, pressed cane, paper rush, and flat reed/splint weaving, as well as other techniques.
The artists advance at their own pace; as one style of seat weaving is mastered, another style is taught. While most of the seat weaving is done to restore chairs for community members, donated chairs in good condition are also restored and sold in the shop.

Your piece is not just a chair or just a rocker, it is a memory of gatherings with friends and family, and of hours spent rocking generations of babies.
I learned to weave on a child’s rocker and high chair which have been in our family for 4 generations.
I work with individuals, refinishers, antique dealers and decorators. And I take pride in restoring pieces to an attractive, useful state again.
