machine-cane-chair-suitable-for-classesClass size: 1-6 people

Class Length: Approximately 5 hours depending on your chair. You may need more time and you are welcome to stay until 5pm.

After the Class: Your chair will have glue in the channel of the seat. It will need to sit still (preferably over night) so that the glue doesn’t run out. For chair seats, if you can transport your chair upright in your car, you’ll be ok taking it home immediately. For chair backs, if you can transport your chair on its back, you will be ok taking it home immediately. It is best to let the chair sit overnight. 

Cost: Includes machine-woven cane, spline, four hours of instruction, and all tools and materials necessary to complete the project.

BYOC: Bring your own chair or we can provide one for you at $20-$40, depending on the chair

IMPORTANT: Please read through our Workshop FAQs.
