Woodturners showcase their skills


The Peninsula Woodturners Guild’s Woodturning in the Park exhibition is not just an opportunity to pick up a gorgeous early Christmas present or two, it’s also your chance to gain a first-hand insight into this fascinating age-old craft.

On at McClelland Sculpture Park+Gallery, 390 McClelland Drive, Langwarrin, from November 8-13 and with free entry, the exhibition will include demonstrations of woodturning at the guild’s studio and workshop in the park grounds. You’ll see woodturners in action and be able to get your hands on a handcrafted item. In an age filled with cheap, disposable and machine-made items, a craft that goes back centuries is definitely something to behold.
