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.

Black Swamp Seat Weaving, LTD, chair caning repair expert is located in NW Ohio in Perrysburg. For over 35 years owner Carrie Weiss has done all forms of chair seat weaving from hand caning to wicker repairs.

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.
Bayberry Seatweaving is now located in Bellevue, Nebraska, just south of Omaha, after recently moving from Canton, Massachusetts. Owner, Ted Powell had his chair caning and seatweaving business in Canton for 15 years, providing chair caning and other seatweaving services in the surrounding area.
My mother was the Extension Service agent for Dukes County on Martha’s Vineyard – great place to grow up on!! She taught me how to refinish, cane, and rush furniture back in the sixties when I was about ten years old.
In Canton, I concentrated on single strand caning, pressed cane, paper rush, pre-twisted natural rush, and Danish cord. I intend to keep doing these same skills and incorporating other seat weaving types as the need arises.
In addition, I provide minor restoration, re-gluing, and refinishing. My turn-around times vary depending on what is needed and the complexity of the work. However, because I am “retired,” I can respond quickly. I provide free cost estimates and can usually do them using a few pictures and some seat measurements.

I started my business after stripping and refinishing the stairs in my Victorian Era home. Shortly after launching my refinishing business, a neighbor brought me a cane chair in need of a new seat.

In terms of refinishing, I restore heirlooms and breath new life into pieces with paint and/or stain. I specialize in custom colour staining and also wicker repair.
