(126) FULL ~ Weave a Porch Weave Stool

You’ve seen them, right? The big porch rockers–sad, with no seat? Learn the basics of weaving the New England Porch Weave on a stool. At the least, you will have a gorgeous natural material (reed) stool and a new skill. If you’re adventurous, you can become a chair nerd and start saving sad chairs and restore them to their former glory!

Students may follow the instructor in real time, or watch the presentation and follow again later when a recording is sent. Please don’t feel pressured to keep up, but many students do finish the stool in two hours.
