Wood crafting


Wood: Art, Joy and Culture

Woodcraft

The 2013 "Wood: Art, Joy, and Culture" program presents you four woodcraft activities in Tanzania, Local Woodcarving Competition, African Woodcarving Show Competition, International Woodcarving Show and Woodturning Show, to support the theme of World Wood Day, "A Cultural Approach to Achieve Wood is Good.

The four woodcraft activities that bring out the theme "Wood: Art, Joy, and Culture" will continue for two days and a half. Local and international woodcarvers and turners will be formally presenting their artwork to judges and audiences about their ideas for the creations at the end of the program.

These activities are held to encourage the public to take a closer look at wood. We hope to bring all the participants a profound experience that would lead to a daily practice to appreciate the natural beauty and the beneficent nature of wood.
