An octagonal pattern has been used in many cane seats over the past 200 years. You may have no idea what the Thonet No. 14 Chair is, but you have probably sat on a few! During this course, you will learn about the rattan palm and the Seven-Step Method used to weave this iconic octagonal pattern. One of the fundamental tasks you will accomplish during the week will be how to manipulate the cane and not break it. The course is workshop based and all tools and materials will be supplied.
