Splint & Shaker Tape Workshop
(Winston-Salem, NC)
Friday & Saturday, March 22 & 23
(10 pm-4pm)


Sawtooth School for Visual Art in Winston-Salem, NC.

Join visiting artist Brandy Clements of Silver River Center for Chair Caning (Asheville, NC) for an intensive introduction to the art & craft of caning! Learn the foundational tools, materials, and techniques of caning while weaving a colorful & comfortable Shaker tape chair on Friday, and a splint-reed seat on Saturday. At the end of the workshop you will have a couple of family heirlooms to use at home and treasure for generations.

Students will need to bring two chairs to work on in class. Sawtooth will contact you with more information after you enroll for the class. Brandy will also have chair frames available to purchase for a nominal fee. All other tools materials are included in class fee. Brandy will contact you two weeks before the start of class regarding chair preparation.
