How to Rush a Chair


Rushing a chair is one of the traditional methods of creating a seat for a chair with rails around the perimeter.  Materials for rushing include twisted cattail leaves or even twisted strands of paper.  The strands of rush are stretched across the seat and looped around the rails, moving in a clockwise direction to fill in the seat.  Pieces of corrugated cardboard are used for additional padding.  Above you will find a short video on how to rush a chair in this manner.  If you have any questions feel free to contact us.
