Seat weaving and chair caning are alive and well on the Mississippi Gulf Coast! Thanks to the continuing education programs in Hancock County and Gulfport, over 120 people in Mississippi have learned this time honored craft since 2007.
Classes are fun, with the focus on making everyone successful. The ability to laugh is a requirement.
