Chair nerds unite! Silver River Center for Chair Caning is excited to host Justin Roberts in our River Arts District Studio in Asheville, NC for two Appalachian Willow Chair Classes.
Make a traditional Appalachian Willow Chair-Two, 2‑day classes in Spring, 2020!
April 6 & 7, 10am-5pm or April 8 & 9, 10am-5pm.
Kentucky Crafted Artist and 2019 Regional Bernheim Artist in Residence, Justin Roberts specializes in the rare folk art of bent-wood willow furniture. Learn about the history, uses and process of the craft through this engaging process. You leave with your own willow chair! Bring a hammer, hand pruners, and work gloves. No experience is necessary.
Justin and his wife, Shannon are creators of epic public art willow sculptures and bird habitats including “Sounds of a Whippoorwill — Bernheim” and “Sounds of a Whippoorwill — Josephine,” and “Choices @ Calloway County Public Library” in Kentucky. Follow them on Instagram @walkthewillow
