In Walnut Hollow, found in the countryside of Southeast Tennessee, lies the quaint workshop of April Greer, a self-taught craftsman with over 20 years experience in the repair and replacement of many seat patterns and weaves, including rare and specialty patterns.
April is a practitioner of many heritage arts, including natural basketry using materials she harvests and prepares, and believes in honoring the past and passing on what she has learned by teaching classes.
April prefers to fix an aged chair rather than throw it out and looks forward to helping preserve a part of your history.

In 1996, Reed was the first Minnesota artist invited to show her work at the new Neiman Marcus Gallery in Minneapolis, MN.
And in 2011 she was contracted by an airworthiness inspector for Boeing to create a replica of the original wicker seat used in the Spirit of St Louis airplane that Charles Lindbergh flew. The project was completed in June of 2012. Reed named ‘her’ Spirit Sophia and has included Spirit Sophia’s photo here.

JWoods Enterprises–I have over 30 years experience in the wicker restoration business. My love of wicker furniture and respect for the art and history of wicker furniture is reflected in the enthusiasm with which I tackle even the most challenging jobs that I accept.
Both antique furniture items and wicker baskets are well worth preserving for future generations. Modern wicker furniture is a continuation of the craft and ensures the need for wicker restoration experts well into our future. It is a confirmation of the comfort and appeal of artful woven furniture.
I am also dedicated to passing on the skills and knowledge needed to perpetuate the craft. My 4-day workshops offered periodically, teach the basics needed to begin a career or hobby doing wicker restorations.
For information on future workshops, visit my Facebook page or email me with your contact information to receive notification of scheduled workshops. Follow the shop on Facebook to stay abreast of workshop news, wicker for sale, and restoration examples.
