Wood Dust Australia
In 2018 we're set to experience a brand new festival for woodworkers and wood lovers that will launch on October 17.
For five days Bungendore and Queanbeyan in NSW will be the nucleus of the wood world as local and international celebrities descend to take part in and enjoy a series of lectures and masterclasses, topped off with a tool marketplace you definitely won’t want to miss. Wood Dust Australia is a new event independently organised by woodworking industry figures John Madden and Evan Dunstone.
The Wood Dust Australia (WDA) festival will take place across a number of venues. In Queanbeyan, from October 17 to 19, daily masterclasses will run at Dunstone Design Workshops, while in the evenings lectures will take place at The Q Theatre. On the weekend of October 20 to 21, a Timber and Tool Marketplace at Bungendore Showgrounds will charge the festival atmosphere with demonstrations, good food, craft beer and live music.
The opening of Studio Furniture 2018, an exhibition of new generation woodwork, organised through the partnering of Australian Wood Review and Bungendore Wood Works Gallery will take place during WDA on the evening of October 20.
A fringe festival and other community events will also take place in the region during the period of October 17–21, 2018 – all the more reason to pencil in these dates and start organising your visit now.
