Chair Caning 2  Day Course with specialist Christine Addley who has always had an interest in old furniture and its restoration, and began caning chairs as a hobby, which then grew into a profession. During the past twenty years, her many commissions have included work on antique chairs for stately homes as well as more modest items. Christine teaches caning and rushwork  and demonstrates at summer events around Yorkshire.

During this course you will learn how to and have the opportunity to cane a simple chair using rattan. Each step will be explained  and demonstrated for you to follow. There will be examples of finished work photographs and  other inspirational material as stimuli. You are welcome to bring along a chair to cane and if you do not have a suitable chair one can be purchased at small cost.
