This is a national exhibition that brings together an outstanding display of wood turned artwork from across Australia that will blow your mind and showcases just what amazing things can be done with wood and how it can be fashioned into quite exquisite pieces of art.
The exhibition is the result of an annual competition with categories of ornamental work, miniatures, pens, wood art, identical pairs, functional items, platters, vessels and yes, bowls. Woodturners from all over the country, both men and women, young and old, compete in different sections: Students (under 18s), Novices, Intermediate and Master Turners. It is expected this year that over 300 items will be on display at the exhibition and many of the pieces will be for sale.
In addition, there will be a programme of live demonstrations by leading turners in Australia and exhibits from major sponsors.
The exhibition is a not for profit event to be held at The Banqueting Rooms, Kingston City Hall, 979 Napean Highway, Moorabbin.
The venue is wheelchair accessible.
This is an outstanding display of wood art that hobbyists, craft, wood and art enthusiasts will appreciate and which can also be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in beautifully crafted handmade items.
