We welcome Dan Benarcik of Chanticleer in Wayne, PA, to give a workshop teaching participants to build their own Reitveld-style Garden Chair, just like those on the grounds at Polly Hill Arboretum. Dan explains he was drawn to the chair by its austere lines, its simplicity, the elegance of its construction, and its surprising comfort. He adds, “For nearly 20 years I have been building, refining, and enjoying this chair. Constructed by hand, it will provide years of enjoyment in your garden.” In less than three hours with only a cordless drill/driver, you will construct your own

Garden Chair (normally sold completed for $345) to take home. No prior experience with either woodworking, power tools, or carpentry is necessary.

$265 ($250 for PHA members). Space is limited. Please pre-register.

Please register at least one week in advance, by calling 508-693-9426.
