Silver River Center for Chair Caning, in CURVE Studios & Garden, is the nation’s only chair caning school and museum. We have a permanent collection of chairs, rotating exhibits, a library, and activities for kids and adults. Daily demonstrations of a variety of seat weaving techniques happen 6 days a week. The museum is dog-friendly and FREE to the public. Classes are available from beginner to advanced throughout the year. We have restored thousands of chair seats and are excited to teach people to restore their own heirlooms. Restorations include cane (machine & laced), rush (natural, paper & leather), splint (reed, binder cane, & bark), Shaker Tape, and Danish Cord.
