Candy & Dave Barnes
Waterford Landmark Artisan
We use traditional tools to weave rattan over handmade molds to create our Nantucket baskets. Various American hardwoods as well as exotics are used for handles, bases & lids and are made on a lathe or by using steam bending techniques. Our walking sticks & canes are made from raw buffalo or rams horn using heat and historical bulking techniques. The shafts are either turned on a lathe or natural that we have harvested, dried, straightened, prepared for use & are custom fit for customer.
Kid Friendly! Children, over 6 years old and with their parent’s permission, can try their hand at weaving.
