For years I caned chairs I have retired and we are moving permanently to Florida. I have numerous chairs that people gave me that haven’t had seats put in them. Some are cane pressed and woven and some rush. I would love to have someone take them who would put seats in them and make them usable again. In the group is a grouping of 5 really sturdy oak pressed back chairs. I would be happy to donate them if you or someone else would keep them from being destroyed.
I would be happy to make use of them. Extra chairs are good for teaching. Email me and we can make arrangements. email@example.com.
I was about to take a splint seat repair class at the Waterford Folk School. Well I had a Stickley natural rushed seat chair in tow. Needless to say we both agreed I needed to take a separate class. If I’m ever up your way I will pack a chair. Are you actively teaching?
I’m not currently hosting any classes given the pandemic situation, but I will and have taught individuals with proper precautions.
