African blackwood for bagpipes
Robert Pearce OAM makes bagpipes using African Blackwood. He will be giving a presentation on how he works the African Blackwood to create the chanters, blowpipes and mouthpieces with great precision. He will also tell us what lessons he has learned from his years of using African Blackwood. More details about Robert are available from his website – http://bagpipeservices.com.au/
The Wall — in huon pine
In the middle of the Tasmanian rainforest is a building which houses The Wall. It’s an amazing work more than 100 metres of bas-relief carvings on 2.5-metre high huon pine panels. We will see a stunning slide show of a man’s extraordinary life’s work.
