Craft Cooee – Wood in Australia
Join the World Crafts Council – Australia board for a conversation about wood. We are blessed by some of the most beautiful timbers in the world. What we make of this gift is a sign of our national identity.
Australia has an incredibly wide range of wood crafts, including Aboriginal carving, fine woodworking, sculpture, guitar-making and boat building. Let’s think about how we might link all this together.
Speakers include Andrew Carvolth (JamFactory), Ashley Ericksmoen (ANU), Damien Wright (pictured above with Yolngu collaborator Bonhula Yunipingu), Andrew Denman (Tasmanian boatbuilder) and Linda Nathan (Australian Wood Review). The host is WoCCA board mamber Niklavs Rubenis (Uni Tas).
