Ever wonder how a caned chair seat is made? Do you have caned chair seats to replace? In this class, participants will hand cane a wooden trivet of their own using natural strand cane to learn the chair caning process. We will also discuss the difference between various types of caning, different caning materials, the 7-step method of hand caning, how to care for caned furniture, and additional chair caning resources. Most supplies provided - see below to review what you should bring.
