Vision is the forward thinking title of the exhibition of work by the graduating full-time 2023 Furniture Makers' Program students at the New Zealand Centre for Fine Woodworking. The exhibition will feature at the Parker Gallery from 7 December to 4 January, 2024.

Alice Knight, Arthur Noguiera, Cam Scott, Deb Harwood, Glen Hamilton, Gloria Hildred and Steve Judge are the seven students whose work will be on display in this prestigious and highly regarded commercial gallery in Nelson, New Zealand.

The Centre for Fine Woodworking runs a 32 week full time program over four terms. Resident tutor Lou Fuller teaches the first two terms covering the foundation skills and the ‘dark art’ of bending wood. Stuart Faulkner teaches the chairmaking module and the final term welcomed back Brian Reid who has taught at the Centre for Furniture Craftsmanship in Maine, USA. Other tutors involved are David Haig, Hape Kiddle and Grant Palliser.

Applications and expressions of interest are open for the 2024 Furniture Makers’ Program. The school is renowned for its high level of tuition and small class sizes – offering a wide range of short courses as well as the full time program.
