Learn to weave a chair with seagrass in a rush pattern.
Previous experience with paper rush is preferred but not necessary.
Class Size: 1-4 people
Class Length: 5 hours/day for 2 days.
Tuition $250: includes materials/tools to complete one 17 inch seat, 10 hours of instruction, post-class assistance on future natural rush projects, and $25 off future day-long classes.
BYOC: Bring your own chair or we can provide one for you with advanced notice at approximately $20.
- After the class: your new seat will need a shellac coating. The chair should dry overnight before the shellac coating. We can do this for you the next day, you can return to the shop to do this after class, or we can send you home with simple instructions to do it yourself.
- Rocking Chairs: May not be suitable for a class setting. Please send a photo and measurements. Rockers may require more time and an additional materials fee.
- If your chair has wooden edging to remove from the sides of the seat, this must be done before class. We can remove and re-attach the skirts for a fee but this should be done AT LEAST ONE DAY BEFORE CLASS and will require 1-2 days after the class to reattach and match color. This could be done by any furniture restoration professional in your hometown.
