The Art of Making 2024

When

Tuesdays to Saturdays, 11am to 5pm Thursday 21 March to Saturday 4 May Except Friday 29 March and Thursday 25 April

The Art of Making presents finely crafted and intelligently designed works in wood.

The exhibition, produced and presented by Australian Design Centre, celebrates this craft form by highlighting a selection of designer makers who are members of Studio Woodworkers Australia.

Each exhibitor demonstrates their commitment to an age-old craft, bringing a contemporary design aesthetic and using innovative construction techniques. Their pieces exemplify technical skill in refined proportions that show respect for well chosen material and the many hours invested in the making.

Australian Design Centre, in its 60th anniversary year, looks to a future that embraces the unique, the authentic and the enduring qualities of good design and handcrafted work made to last for many generations to come.

Studio Woodworkers Australia acknowledges the support of Australian Wood Review.

The Art of Making was first presented at Australian Design Centre in 2022.  Visit the exhibition page.
