Are you a business owner who wants to train your employees?

Need help with your chair but can’t make it to Asheville?

Are you wanting to become a chair caner and have questions?

Architects, Decorators, CEOs, Furniture Designers, Students, Hobbyists:  A LOT of people call me for advice. I would love to spend time geeking out on chairs and helping you through the process of caning your particular seat. I love chairs. I love people. Therefore, I will be happy to spend time with you on the phone for 10 minutes at no charge.

To expedite the process:

1.  EMAIL SilverRiverChairs@gmail.com before calling.  Have SPECIFIC questions ready! Send photos and questions in the same email.

2. In the subject line, please enter “consultation.”

3.  In the body of the email, ask your questions.  

4. Tell me your availability to talk.  We can take care of some things online but phone calls are just easier.

Consultation Fee after 10 minutes, $25/30 minutes of phone time.  

For more in depth advice on your project, just take pictures of your chair (front, side, back, and underneath views) and send photos to SilverRiverChairs@gmail.com. Students get free advice after their classes!

It is my goal to spread the love of chairs all over the world. I am compelled to prevent caning from becoming a lost art. In an ideal world, I’d weave chairs and teach caning for free….In the real world, I have to charge by the hour or fraction thereof.


Thanks for understanding.
