Sunday, October 11, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm – Rustic Furniture Design

Craftsman Frank Hamm believes that anyone can build beautiful and functional furniture using just green tree limbs and saplings. Under his expert guidance, learn how to construct a terrific garden gate, trellis or side table in this half-day, hands-on workshop at Tower Hill Botanic Garden on Sunday, October 11, beginning at 1 pm. You will learn how to use straight, curved and forked branches for design and structural integrity. Create harmonious, sculptural forms by carefully coordinating the complex shapes of individual wood cuttings. Take home a terrific addition to your garden, home or yard. (Log on to for ideas.) Bring a hand drill and small bits, measuring tape, hammer and saw if you have them. Dress for the weather.  Fee is $55 for Tower Hill members, $60 for non-members.  To register, log on to
