SRCCC-laced-cane-studentLearn to weave a chair or stool with holes drilled into the seat frame.

How to tell if your chair is laced cane: You will see loops of cane underneath the chair.  You will also see a larger piece of cane at the edge of the cane pattern which has been sewn on the frame.

General: Hand or Laced caning is also called “the seven step method”or “six way pattern.”  Caning requires hours of concentration and practice. Each step has each own subtleties. It takes completion of many seats to REALLY get the hang of it….so be patient with yourself, and enjoy learning this skill.

Before Class:  At least a week before class we need to measure your chair for appropriately sized cane strands, and inspect it for structural issues.

Chairs not suitable for your first class: 

  • ROUND CHAIRS! Common but not great for your first project
  • chairs with curved back/seat are not ideal but easier than round chairs

  • holes that do not go all the way through the frame or share a seam with other panels of cane.
