Rush weaving has been widely used on simpler pieces of furniture since at least the 17th century.  Originally the materials used were dried rushes, a kind of marshland plant.  These days, twisted fiber rush made from paper is the material of choice.  We will be using fiber rush to weave a top for a small pre-made footstool, similar to the antique one pictured here.  Participants will be able to take the stool home with them.

Workshop will be held at the Colonial Plantation; in the case of inclement or bitterly cold weather, class might be moved to the Ridley Creek State Park Mansion nearby.

Ages 12 and up please.
