Spring Events

Saturday, April 15 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

Basic Seven Steps of Caning

Join instructor Jean Reed of Murray Hill Weaving for an engaging session on the art of seat caning. An old chair is something to be cherished and if it has its original seat you are fortunate. Finding an old chair with a well-used or missing seat does not mean the chair should be disposed of. To cane a chair seat is not difficult, nor is it a lost art; just consider it a challenge and allow Jean to share her experience with you. Spend a day learning the basic seven steps of caning on a beautifully hand crafted footstool that will be supplied and take it home after you have finished the seat. No previous weaving experience is required. No special weaving tools are required but if you have a spray bottle, scissors, a hand towel, and a tape measure, please bring them along.

Cost: $175 per person. $165 for Museum members. Class size is limited to ten.

To register, call the Museum at (603) 632-4346 or email education@shakermuseum.org.
