Garden Chair Workshops are available for professional education
programs and also for private events. In less than three hours
with only a cordless drill/driver, you will construct your own Garden Chair. No prior experience with either woodworking, power tools or carpentry is necessary. A fun and industrious session for a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 10 people will yield a finished chair for all who participate. Garden Chair building is great for team building, birthday parties and get togethers. The cost per chair is $200, (Saving $75 per chair!) These workshops are available only locally (Delaware and surrounding areas) at this time due to transporting materials. Other opportunities are open to discussion. See Contact page.
With clear step-by-step directions and easy to source lumber and hardware
that you purchase, you construct your own Garden Chair.
Will be sent as PDF unless hardcopy is requested.

"This chair ruined me. My very first visit to the garden Mecca that is Wave Hill was supposed to be the best thing that ever happened to me as a young horticulturist. But I saw the chair first, and it ruined me for all others. Drawn by its austere lines, lured by the simplicity and elegance of its construction, and more than pleasantly surprised by the comfort in which it embraced me. I must build this chair I thought, and so it began.
For nearly twenty years I have been building, refining and enjoying this chair. Constructed by hand, this chair will provide years of enjoyment in your garden. I have shared it with hundreds of others, now I would like to share it with you."
