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 lucrative because it’s so rarely done anymore 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 future 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.
If this blog post has piqued your interest and you’d like to learn more about hand-twisted cattail leaf rush chair seat weaving, see the classes I’ve offered in past years at North House Folk School in Grand Marais, Minnesota.
