Heritage Program – Artist: Nancy Rafal
August 5 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Sister Bay Historical Society is again sponsoring the Heritage Program during the summer of 2023. Each Saturday beginning June 24 artists display their work. The Programs run Saturday morning during the Farmers Market at the Corner of The Past Museum. So, it is an opportunity to buy fresh produce and enjoy an artist’s work.
August 5 will feature Nancy Rafal – Chair Caning Artist.
Nancy Rafal has been chair caning for seventeen years. She learned the craft from Arvid Munson in classes at The Clearing in Winter. She joined The SeatWeavers’ Guild ®, an international group, about 10 years ago and has participated in the group’s annual gatherings. About five years ago Nancy hosted the group at Old World Wisconsin in Eagle. Nancy enjoys bringing new life to old chairs and now teaches during January and February at The Clearing in the Winter. If you have a chair that needs rescuing bring pictures of it and Nancy will discuss it with you.
You can try your hand at several projects she will have with her.
