(127) FULL ~ Weave a Rush Stool

Learn to rush a stool with fiber (paper) rush. Skills used in this class can be used to rush chairs with other materials: Pretwisted natural rush, seagrass, paracord, twine, corded wool or whatever you can imagine.

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.
