At the end of this one day course you will be able to understand the ‘setting’ and ‘weaving’ processes used in caning. From there you will be able to tackle small bedroom chair seats and gain the experience to take on larger projects.



I had always liked working with wood and was always enthusiastic in my school woodworking classes.

After leaving school I trained as a Carpenter & Joiner and gained experience working as a Furniture Re-upholsterer and Restorer. For more than twenty years I had been self-employed combining the two trades in a workshop.

About six years ago I re-trained as a tutor and now teach Carpentry & Joinery / Bench joinery to Level 1 and 2 students.
