Splint Chair Bottoming 101 at Foxfire [Rabun Co.]


  • Foxfire Museum & Heritage Center 98 Foxfire Lane Mountain City, GA 30562 USA (map)

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, 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. It 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!
