For inquiries, please email [email protected]) Level: Beginner & Intermediate Instructor: DJ White Location: RMFS Building – 315 Pitkin Ave, Grand Lake, CO Join us for a hands-on weekend at the Rocky Mountain Folk School in Grand Lake, CO, and immerse yourself in the age-old craft of chair caning. This class offers a unique opportunity to learn the traditional 7-step caning pattern, breathing new life into worn-out chair seats. If you don’t have a chair, worry not – we’ve got a few chairs available for a small extra charge (email [email protected]). Bring along a square or rectangular chair in good condition, with fewer than 80 holes in the seat frame, ready for a caning makeover. Ensure any necessary repairs and refinishing are done in advance, and if possible, remove the old cane. For personalized guidance, share a photo of your chair’s seat with a ruler next to the drilled holes when you register. Questions about the type of chair to bring? Reach out to the instructor at [email protected], and don’t forget to send that chair photo for a tailored learning experience. Let’s craft and create together in our inspiring mountain lake community!
