No. of Students: Minimum 3, Maximum 6
Tools: Students should bring a pair of clippers.Ms. Foster can provide a cedar folding “fishing” chair for students to cane for a materials cost of $100. If students want to provide their own chair to cane, it must have fewer than 70 holes. Materials would then be $20.
Description: Students will learn the six-step standard pattern which is the most widely used and the strongest. The chair seat itself will be the “loom” with holes drilled around the frame for the cane to be woven through. When the six steps are finished, binder cane and lacing will be applied to cover the holes and knotted to finish the bottom.
