Put Your Feet Up: Weave a Footstool with Paper Fiber Rush
Ready to put your feet up? Try your hand at traditional paper fiber rush weaving and complete a small footstool in just one day. You’ll start with an assembled and lightly finished footstool and end with a beautiful piece of furniture you’ll appreciate for years to come. You will be using a continuous strand of rolled paper rope, a product that was invented in the early 1900s and made to resemble the hand-twisted natural bulrush or cattail leaves found in older chair seats. Cathryn will show you all the tricks of the trade to speed and improve your weaving process. Take a home a footstool (13” x 11”) and the knowledge to start new projects on your own.
