Great news for cane chairs everywhere! Although its not possible even for the most experienced to replace a cane chair seat in a single day , this is wonderful opportunity to learn the various stages of this
lovely craft from Wendy, an experienced restorer in a single day course. By the end of the day you will be going home with a chair well on its way to receiving a lovely new bottom!
Wendy Wilkinson is an experienced restorer from Manchester and will traveling to Greystoke for the day to teach this wonderful age old craft . You will need to bring with you a cane chair to restore and in order to ensure that students are able to finish their project in a day students must (at home) remove the existing cane (and keep it for use a template) before they arrive. This way the chair will be ready to start to re cane as soon as the day begins.
We will send you the simple instructions provided by Wendy when you book.
