Many Think Tasmania readers are impressed by the handmade or bespoke items we introduce. And this state is well-known for a wide range of specialty timbers. With these factors in mind, we’d like to make a suggestion. Mark your diary now ready to attend the annual Woodcraft Expo in Ulverstone… it’s scheduled for October 11 and 12 this year.
North West Woodcraft Expo, Ulverstone
Michelle Kneipp-Pegler from Uncover Tasmania Guided Tours introduced our readers to the Woodcraft Expo a few years back. You can still read about Michelle’s experience, as our articles generally remain online permanently for all and sundry to find.
Visitors at this year’s event will be able to meet several special guests: John Ward (guitar maker); Lee Cole (basket maker) and Gail Hart (glass bead maker).
There will be wood and craft demonstrations staged throughout the October weekend. Woodcraft enthusiasts can watch and learn from the experts.
Woodwork: Demonstrations, Sales and More
Exhibitions, displays and sales will feature at the Woodcraft Expo. We’ve also heard a whisper there’ll be a woodwork competition and a raffle running as well. One lucky visitor will take home an entry “door prize”.
Admission to the Woodcraft Expo will set you back $5-00, or just $4-00 if you’re a pensioner. Children under the age of 16 will enter free-of-charge when accompanied by a paying adult.
If all the browsing makes you hungry, members of the North West Woodcraft Guild will be on hand to provide refreshments. At the very least, you can enjoy a sausage straight from the sizzling bbq.
Make Your Way: Ulverstone Rowing Club
For all the action of this year’s Woodcraft Expo, head to the Ulverstone Rowing Club in Kings Parade, October 11 and 12. And if you do go along, could you please do us a huge favour? Send us a photo and we’ll share the image via social media with all our readers. Thanks!
