Build a Wave Hill Chair

Description: 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 cordless drill/screwdriver that is fully charged. 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. Call 410.634.2847, ext. 0 to order an additional kit.

Registration required. Fee: $150 members, $185 general public
