For more than 200 years, the Shakers have seated their chairs and stools with woven cloth tape – a classic Shaker feature that is colorful, comfortable, and durable.

Local instructor and Shaker enthusiast Sandy MacDonald will explain the history of Shaker chairs using original, historic examples along with contemporary replicas. Learn the methods, tips, and techniques to weaving Shaker chair and stool seat patterns. Restore your favorite chair or stool in classic Shaker style. Your chair or stool must have rounded seat rails.
