HERITAGE PROGRAM – Nancy Rafal, Chair Caning. 8:30 am to 11am
Nancy Rafal has been chair caning for seventeen years. She learned the craft from Arvid Munson in classes at The Clearing in Winter. She joined The SeatWeavers’ Guild ®, an international group, about 10 years ago and has participated in the group’s annual Gatherings. About five years ago Nancy hosted the group at Old World Wisconsin in Eagle. Nancy enjoys bringing new life to old chairs and now teaches, along with Bert Day, during January and February at The Clearing in the Winter. If you have a chair that needs rescuing bring pictures of it and Nancy will discuss it with you. You can try your hand at several projects she will have with her.
