About Silver River Center for Chair Caning

Our mission is to cultivate and inspire a reverence for a worldwide chair caning legacy. Our vision is to promote an enthusiasm for the craft through education, restoration, and travel.
We are a couple of chair nerds on a mission to dispel the myth that chair caning is a dying art. We want to empower everyone to learn to restore their own chairs. And so, we expanded our chair caning restoration business into Silver River Center for Chair Caning, the nation’s only chair caning school and museum! We are proud to honor a family tradition, the craft, and all chair nerds (past, present, and future) with Silver River Center for Chair Caning.

Limited seating available. An 80% refund will be issued if the participant cancels by two weeks prior to the event. For cancellations made less than one week prior to the event, BRAHM will issue a refund IF the museum is able to fill the vacated spot.
