The Exhibition will feature the best work from the Members of the Guild over the past 2 years. Several are leading New Zealand artists and have been winners or highly placed in a number of competitions. Work from the turners, carvers, furniture makers, sculptors and green woodworkers will be there and mostly for sale..

This is an opportunity to see the beauty of our native timbers expressed through several different craft disciplines. Style range from the round forms of the turners through to the intricate detail of the carvers and the rough hewed textures of the people working directly with freshly felled, green wood. Fine furniture will show just what can be achieved by skilled hands. The latest ways of enhancing timber to bring out hidden colour and inherent glow will be on show.

People of all ages will be interested in the displays. Especially of interest to families with children who may be looking for a way to express their creativity, a new hobby or perhaps a career later in life. Adults may be encouraged by the items to join the Guild and learn how to produce similar objects for themselves.
