Chair Seat Weaving Class To Be Held Jan. 26

Jan. 9, 2002

The age-old craft of chair seat splint weaving and chair rushing will be taught at Baylor University's Gov. Bill and Vara Daniel Historic Village from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26. With the instruction of historic village staff member Leslie Collier, participants will learn to turn bottomless chairs gathering dust in the attic or garage into usable pieces of furniture.

The fee to attend the class is $20 with a $20 supply fee for chair splinting and a $11 fee for chair rushing. Participants can bring their own chair or stool to work on or can use a chair or stool supplied by the historic village. Complete footstool kits also will be available.

To register for the splint weaving class or for more information, call (254) 710-1160. Registration is required by Jan. 11. Future craft classes include natural dyeing in February and wood carving in March.
