Chair caning is physically demanding work. If you are injured, please let us repair your chair for you. Wait until injuries have healed before taking a chair caning class.
READ THIS! Important information for ALL CLASSES follows:
If you don’t have a chair, we can pick one up for you for $10-$40, depending on the chair. Please let us know when you sign up so we can find a chair.
Some chairs can’t be TOTALLY finished in a day…Rush and Splint chairs must dry over night and then get a shellac coating to protect them from stains. We can do this for you, we can send you home with instructions, or you can come back in the next day to shellac your chair. It will only take about an hour which includes enough time for the shellac to dry enough for you to take the chair home.
A signed waiver is required for participation in any of our workshops.
If you have financial need and are willing to work for us for trade of class cost, we will consider based on each situation.
