During this 2-day class, students will first learn what they might want to grow in their own gardens. And some plants used grow commonly around us and often are known as “weeds”. Students will then learn to harvest, dry and store herbs in a variety of ways. Then they will learn what to use them for as they make their own teas and tinctures to take home.

In the July Caning class, students will learn the history, origin, and preservation of woven seats. They will learn how to prepare the materials to be used and what size cane to use. Then they 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.
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. This is a two day class. Students will leave with a finished product.
