Flat Reed Chair Bottoming

Flat Reed Chair Bottoming Class at Foxfire

Taught by Foxfire contact and demonstrator Kermit Rood, this two-day class introduces the student to the fundamentals of chair bottoming, with a focus on splint-style weaving. Originally, the splint was thin strips of white oak, hickory, or ash. The wood strips have been replaced with the more economical and easier to work with flat reed. Flat reed can be woven into different patterns.
For the class, students will need to bring a chair they wish to bottom. All other tools and materials will be supplied in the class. Be sure to pack your lunch for both days!
