Shades of Nature

The beauty of the light shining through these shades is magical. You will create two lampshades using pressed botanicals ... hidden when the lamp is off, admired when the lamp is on. In addition, you will create two-night lights.

Chair Caning

Adirondack Folk School 51 Main St., Lake Luzerne

Spend a few days learning how to cane your own chair during which you'll learn how to weave the traditional 7-step caning pattern. Bring along a chair in good condition in need of a new caned seat. Ideally, the chair seat will be square or rectangular in shape and have fewer than 85 holes drilled into the seat frame. Any repairs and refinishing should be completed before the class begins. Please bring a chair in sound condition, with the old cane removed, if possible.
