About Gilly Sloper - The Chair Repair Shop

I have been restoring lovely chairs for over forty years using cane, rush, willow and sea grass. I am skilled in restoring DRYAD furniture and similar rattan items. I can reset joints, replace rails and patch broken parts. I also create sculptures, lampshades and bags in macrame. I have restored chairs from all over the country, some people courier chairs to me and quite a few bring their chairs on holiday with them. I do not have a website so have a look at my Facebook page : The Chair Repair Shop

Twine chair

I wasn’t able to match the cord used to weave this chair. The twine had worn and disintegrated at the front of the seat so I removed usable twine from the top and bottom of the chair to restore the seat and then filled the resulting gaps with cane. After staining it matched beautifully.
