Brandy has been hard at work planning the Appalachian Chair Caning Tour, just a piece of the puzzle in reviving Chair Caning in America.  We are looking for grants and other sources of funding.  If you have ideas for the tour, places for us to stay along the way, please call.  Tour dates to be determined.

We love to teach CHAIR CANING CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS! in the studio or we can travel to your town.

Chair caning is in my blood.  My family has been caning since at least the mid-1800’s according to the written history.  We began caning in 2005 and since then, Dave & I have continuously sought out new styles, new weaves, and new projects.  We weave cane, rush, splint (or split) weaves in various styles, danish cord, and more!  All work is guaranteed, estimates are free, and pick-up/delivery services are available.
