Fletcher Farm School announces August classes

Saturday, Aug. 8—LUDLOW— If you just can’t throw out those old neckties here is the perfect way to give them a new life! Find an old chair or rocker that was made for a woven or rush seat, and learn to weave the strongest seat you can imagine. No previous weaving skills are required, and there are no special tools involved. Go to the flea markets and antique shops to find that perfect chair and a variety of silk ties! These chairs have country flair and are fun to make and are great gifts for men. Basic sewing machine skills are required. Instructor Joyce Fuller will have ties available to purchase for students needing extras. If you need ties for a whole chair seat please contact the instructor as soon as possible.

Additionally, The Fletcher Farm School for the Arts and Crafts has announced the following classes to be held on campus during the month of August.

Aug. 8-9 – Weave a necktie chair seat with Joyce Fuller

Aug. 15 – Silk sampler day with Sandi Cirillo

Aug. 15-16 – Chair caning with Meg Kupiec

Aug. 18 – Simple country work basket with Jean Reed

Between having to close the school at the beginning of the pandemic, having to cancel so many summer classes due to quarantine restrictions, and the lack of registrations for the on-campus classes they did hold, Fletcher Farm needs your help desperately!
