Since 1972. Some businesses are for making a profit. Mine is for providing a service. Instruction, hands on, guidance at hand. If the item can be restored, I will do it. Refinishing for the sole purpose of changing the color is not to be done. Finest materials and methods. Safety is the most important thing in life. All that needs to be done, including finish work, repair, caning (seatweaving) and antique style upholstering. Teaching is a duty.
East Street Arts is dedicated to fostering the creation of art through artisan training programs, workshops and community interactions for persons of all abilities.
The Association of Artisans to Cane, a chair caning studio at East Street Arts, students learn many different styles of seat weaving and use these skills to restore chairs for community members. Caning students are trained in the craft of chair seat weaving through hands-on learning and with oversight from a Master caner with over 30 years of experience.
The caning students have 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. Caning students advance at their own pace; as one style of caning 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.

Richard Saunders is an antique wicker furniture repair expert with over 40 years experience and is the author of five books on antique wicker furniture, including Collecting and Restoring Wicker Furniture — the first book published with a how-to chapter on wicker repair.
Several years ago, he relocated from CA to Savannah, GA, bringing with him over 40 years of experience in restoring, writing about and appraising antique wicker furniture.
Now after a sabbatical from the day-to-day activities of wicker furniture and cane repair and restoration, Richard has decided to once again offer his quality wicker restoration services. So, if you have a wicker piece that needs some repair or restoration work, contact Richard today for an appointment.
Richard will also continue to serve the antique wicker field certified wicker furniture appraiser. So don’t throw out a valuable and irreplaceable piece of our American wicker history. Just because you don’t know what kind of wicker you have, when it was made, who the manufacturer was or what the value is now, doesn’t mean it’s not still valuable. STOP! Before you toss your wicker–get it appraised by the certified wicker appraiser expert first!
Richard provides certified, fee-based wicker furniture appraisals at $25 per piece. His appraisals can be used to establish a value of your wicker pieces for a variety of purposes such as heirloom/ inheritance, estate, resale, insurance, moving damage claims, and even court cases if necessary. Richard’s appraisals also include historical information, notes on style and design, dating the piece and proven or likely manufacturer.
Certified appraisals are given only after physical inspection or through a series of good quality photos sent via email or postal mail. Richard Saunders is one of only a few whose appraisal certification specialty is antique wicker furniture. Contact Richard today for an appointment so you will be knowledgeable about your wicker furniture, too.
Mr. Saunders is also offering brand new copies of WICKER FURNITURE: A GUIDE TO RESTORING AND COLLECTING (Crown Publishers; 1990). This is a 245-page, large format paperback book which includes an 8-page color photo section, hundreds of black and white photos and lots of fascinating information on antique wicker furniture. Perfect addition to anyone’s personal reference library.
This book went out of print several years ago but he has a limited supply of NEW copies which he purchased from the publisher’s warehouse. He would be happy to personally sign your copy. Price is $20, including shipping and handling.
Contact Richard today to order your signed book, WICKER FURNITURE: A GUIDE TO RESTORING AND COLLECTING or to get your wicker piece evaluated and appraised for its proper value!
