Event description

Description

If you've ever thought it would be fun to tape or re-tape your own Shaker chair - this is the workshop for you! Have you ever wondered how the Shakers wove those elegant chair seats without any ends showing? You'll learn to prepare the chair frame, calculate the quantity of tape required, plan a weaving pattern & tape the seat. You'll even get a tool kit to take home! You need to furnish your own suitable chair frame. If you don't have a chair you want to tape, you might be interested in the Shaker Chair in a Box workshop!

Students should bring: Material for taking notes and an acceptable Shaker chair frame. Chair tape is also required, which may be purchased through the Canterbury Shaker Village Museum Store.

DATE: Saturday, July 15th, 2017

TIME: 9am-5pm (Lunch is not provided - students can buy lunch at the Shaker Box Lunch or can bring their own packed lunch.)

COST: $125 (Canterbury Shaker Village Member); $135 (Non-Member)

INSTRUCTOR: A lifelong interest in woodworking drew Dick Bennett to Canterbury Shaker Village in 2004. He has since served as a Museum Interpreter, Shaker Craft Demonstrator & Workshop Leader.
