JOIN US IN BUILDING HIGH WYCOMB'S 'LAST CHAIR ARCH'
COME CELEBRATE WITH US AT THE GRAND OPENING.
Over the past year public works has worked with residents of the Wye Dene, students and staff from Bucks New University and members from the furniture making industry to create a new Chair Arch for High Wycombe which will be realised in the Wye Dene.
The chairs and arch will be assembled on site in Wye Dene with
people from High Wycombe.
The Last Chair Arch will remain on site for one week after which it will be dismantled and the chairs given away for free. Residents of High Wycombe are invited to become custodians of one or more chairs.
With no additional infrastructure required to form the arch, it is entirely possible that the chairs could be arched again in the future by the residents themselves.
OPEN CONSTRUCTION WORKSHOPS
Help assemble the custom designed ‘Chair for Arching’ which will be used to construct the Chair Arch. The assembly process is simple and does not require specialist knowledge
or use of power tools. We welcome anyone who wants to get
involved or simply wants to drop by and find out more. No RSVP is
needed and participants can join at any time.
Assembly workshops will take place from 19th September to 2nd October, 10.30am - 5pm on the lawn beside the Watercress Pond
