Bim Willow Furniture Bent Willow Chair (200-08-03-19-01)

Saturday, August 3 - AFTERNOON SESSION 1 P.M.- 6 P.M. Bim Willow, Bent Willow Artisan and Author

All levels, especially beginners!

Bim Willow is coming back to the Arboretum in a tricked-out bus full of willow and you will not want to miss it! Bent willow furniture was an early American craft that is making a strong comeback. Bim is an experienced artist in this medium, and will walk you step-by-step through the willow project of your choice, resulting in a beautiful bent willow piece within a matter of a few hours--really! You will never feel more proud of the furniture building skills you didn’t know you had. Prices listed are per project, and include a box lunch or dinner.

Bring from home

  • Hammer
  • pruning shears
  • vehicle large enough to carry your finished project home (rental vehicles available by the hour at Home Depot & Menards).
  • Loppers (suggested, not required)
  • wire cutters (suggested, not required)

How it works

Images of each project are available on the website. Projects are grouped by similar construction techniques; you will be working simultaneously alongside other participants regardless of which project you choose. Bim and his assistants will rotate through all participants to provide one-on-one attention as you complete each step. The amount of time to complete a project varies based on the student; the times listed are an estimate.

Projects are intended for solo builders

Couples are encouraged to register for two simultaneous projects (what's better than one chair? A set of chairs!) See coupon offer below.


All registrations must be received no later than Friday, July 26 at 3pm. Bim custom-harvests the willow for your project!
