More hands-on workshops at Maleny expo

Comments Comments


Mark your woodworking calendar – this year’s Maleny Wood Expo will be even more chock-full of woodworking activities and workshops. A sample of the offering is below.


Brian Jones returns to run his very popular canoe-building workshop. Last year this was a big hit with both participants and spectators.


Another practical, creative and make-do activity is to get the kids making their very own cubby from natural materials with Project Fort Awesome.


Other workshops include crafting a wooden bucket with Colonial Woodcrafts, making beautiful spoons with Carol Russell, and exploring the skills of handcarving with Don Powell. Kids can also make stools at the ever-popular Cool Stool School, and with Mothers’ Day coming up they may want to try their hand at making a present – pyrography, anyone?

Chopstick making, weaving hats and belts from natural materials, making bamboo flutes, paper making, eco-dyeing, crafting model boats, macramé, creating and decorating didgeridoos and boomerangs – the list goes on!

In addition to a huge range of displays and demonstrations it’s true to say there are workshops and activities for all ages and skill levels. This is a family-friendly expo with a great, laid-back country atmosphere.

Maleny Wood Expo runs on the Queensland Labour Day Long Weekend May 2, 3, 4.
