Don’t get bored this winter – make some simple and stylish outdoor furniture and yard décor for next summer’s outdoor gatherings! How? Come to a talk by woodwork artist Katie Jackson on Saturday, January 7th from 10:30am to noon at the Danbury Library and learn how you can do-it-yourself.
In Ms. Jackson’s book, “Hand-Built Outdoor Furniture: 20 Step-by-Step Projects Anyone Can Build,” she covers the basics of woodworking and guides readers through projects such as Shaker pegboard shelves, stair-step planter boxes, and much more.
Katie Jackson studied visual art and education at Bennington College in Vermont and she was trained at New England School of Architectural Woodworking’s Cabinetmaking Career Training program in Massachusetts. She spent several years teaching woodworking to adolescent girls at workshops in the California Bay Area. Ms. Jackson lives in Southington, CT
