Come and spend the Weekend at Wood Dust…

If you really want to immerse yourself in a design and woodworking learning experience, then come on down to the Weekend at Wood Dust Makers Conference. This brand-new event offers a range of international and Australian designer makers, demonstrating and discussing a comprehensive range of topics.
The Weekend at Wood Dust features 6 live workshop spaces with video and audio support, and seating for all participants. On both days over the weekend, there will be 4 woodworking demonstrations of 90 minutes each per day, at each of the 6 live workshops. That is 24 quality presentations each day, with a grand total of 48 workshop demonstrations over the entire weekend for you to choose from. Between each demonstration there is a 30 minute break so you can chat to the presenters, talk with fellow woodworkers, have a snack or duck out to the Timber & Tool Marketplace that is right next door.
Your ticket to the Weekend at Wood Dust Makers Conference provides you with a unique woodworking experience never seen before down under. You’ll also get a show bag full of goodies, lunch on the day, snacks, coffee and the opportunity to rub shoulders with a broad segment of the design and woodworking community.

There is a catch – tickets are strictly limited so don’t muck about.
