Two Day Chair Caning Workshop

About the Course 

The courses are two days long and will take place in J A Milton’s workshop in Ellesmere. You can either bring along your own piece of furniture or you can purchase a sample frame to work on. Sample frames take on average 6 hours to complete so make an ideal first project.

The classes will be from around 9:15am until 4pm including a cold buffet lunch and refreshments throughout the day. If you would like to come to us for a course we can recommend some of our local accommodation – further information can be found here.
