I have been restoring cane and rush chairs for over 25 years and first became interested when I worked in auction salerooms and saw beautiful old chairs in need of repair and tlc.  When on a rush seating course I saw other participants making rush hats and baskets, had a go and was hooked!  I particularly enjoy working with rush as it is silky and ribbon-like when damp and has a beautiful range of colours when first picked.
