A Life Long Crafter – or Caning a chair

Rhoda Rafkin is 91 – she has always made things. She has done ceramics, painting, knitting, crocheting, sewing, papier-mache, and just about everything else.

Right now she is caning a chair. But she’s stuck and she can’t figure it out. I have more of a video of her, but here is a clip. She also has a “craft group” that meets monthly. The women are all at least forty years younger than she is but they meet on Sundays and eat lunch and make things. It’s awesome.
