24 Wood project: warp, weft and wood – an intro to seat caning with Isabelle Moore

Construct, shape and cane an elegant, low four-legged stool. Learn the considerations when fabricating elements of frame structures to weave; loading, tension, joint construction, timber selection and ergonomics. Mark out and hand cut interlocking joinery for strength and longevity, create and use templates for accuracy in shaping components, learn glue up and clamping strategies as well as clean up and application of finishes. Learn caning techniques with material preparation, planning and implementation of woven, load-bearing surfaces to complete your elegant stool.

'…to capture imagination into a 3D physical object / work is really remarkable, sometimes poetic, other times dynamic, it can be sophisticated, or brutalist ...there is real magic to it all ...Isabelle's work has always had that, which is why I always find her work so captivating...' – Jeffrey Bernett
