Paper Rush Seat Weaving Class

We all had a great time at the rush seat weaving class at North House Folk School in Grand Marais, Minnesota, August 19-20, 2015.

Most of the time we had great weather, but it did rain periodically. The harbor in front of the school campus is lovely though, no matter the weather. The north shore of Lake Superior is always interesting.

The two-day paper rush class was held on Wednesday and Thursday and had five students. Most brought either a chair or stool they wanted to work on and for two, I supplied the chair frames.

Thanks to all that attended, you did a great job for your first try! I had fun and hope you did too and will try your hand at weaving more paper rush chair seats.

    I have a pair of antique ladder back chairs which needs new bottoms. I watched a wonderful lesson on this site last year or so. I wonder if a person can actually do a creditable job with no prior experience in caning. I also have a wicker rocking chair that is broken in many places — being held together in many places with rolled silk tape, I’d love to take lessons from home as there are no wicker or caning professionals in my town.

      Hi Jean,

      Thanks for visiting my site, and leaving your nice compliment and comment here on the blog. If it’s total wicker furniture repair lessons you are searching for, I’m not familiar with any videos that cover those instructions. However, there are a few good books that are still available, check the listing on my Wicker Furniture FAQ. Also have you seen the Wicker Repair Process page, which shows how I repaired a Heywood Wakefield sewing cabinet? How about the Wicker Rocker Repair article page? Hope all this has been helpful!
