Chanticleer Garden horticulturalist and craftsman Dan Benarcik returns to Adkins Arboretum to lead a workshop in the construction of the Wave Hill chair. Based on a 1918 design by acclaimed Dutch architect Gerrit Rietveld and modified in the 1960s, the chair was popularized in the garden at Wave Hill in the Bronx. This timeless comfortable chair is suitable for any garden setting. Join Dan to build your own chair at a significant discount from the retail price of $245. No carpentry skills are needed. Please bring a fully charged cordless drill/screwdriver. All materials, including pre-cut cedar and hardware, are included in the fee. If you are unable to attend the workshop or would like an additional chair, kits will be available for purchase the day of the workshop for $175. Ordering additional chair kits in advance is highly recommended.
Create your own power bracelet with instruction and guidance from renowned local artist Sue Stockman. Sue will guide participants in the process of forming 12-gauge copper wire into a bracelet armature and its adornment to create a unique piece of jewelry. All materials are included.
