Demonstration: The Ancient Art of Chair Caning

Brandy Clements of Silver River Center for Chair Caning in the River Arts District will be at Grovewood Gallery February 16-18 demonstrating authentic cattail rush weaving on a chair seat designed by Brian Brace Fine Furniture. This style of weaving dates back thousands of years to ancient Egypt and can be found on classic Gustav Stickley chair seats. 

Brandy is a 4th generation chair caner and a self-proclaimed "chair nerd" on a mission to dispel the myth that chair seat weaving is a lost art. She and her husband/business partner Dave Klingler have been weaving new lives into chairs for over 12 years, and have taught over 100 sessions at their school, offering classes on laced and pressed caning as well as splint, rush, and Shaker tape weaving. This year marks Silver River's 4th anniversary as the nation's only fully dedicated chair caning school and museum. The school is also an official education center of the Southern Highland Craft Guild.
