Felder have agreed to generously sponsor the SWA again – for another two years. In return Felder have asked for images and a brief testimonial from SWA members who are currently using their equipment. Those members who have provided images etc previously, new words & images would be appreciated. This content will be listed on the Felder website. This will again enable SWA to provide additional benefits to members including exhibitions and conferences. Please send images and text to Will Matthysen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to our new Accredited Members, Kanun Onsel, Isao Takezawa, Ben Percy and Stuart Faulkner. SWA is fortunate to have these talented designer -makers on board. This is a call to all General Members to take the plunge and become accredited!
The Cult initiative is moving ahead smoothly. Around 10 members have applied to have their work assessed by Richard Manao of Cult with a view to the further production and marketing of their work. Many thanks to David Muston and Leon Sadubin for organizing this initiative. The meeting with Richard will take place in May at the Powerhouse Museum. Dates and details yet to be finalized.
The Mentoring Program is up and running with Accredited Members looking forward to General Members seeking their advice and assistance with their work. The idea behind the scheme is to match up General Members with Accredited Members and to assist makers starting out in their careers with technical and business information necessary to successfully set up their businesses. On the other side, established makers who have large projects in hand, can engage General Members to assist them…..both benefit. SWA will put members in touch with each other and provide a checklist to both parties, but ultimately it is an understanding between the parties concerned. Alby Johnston is the co-ordinator and can be contacted on email@example.com.
I cannot find a heading in The Forum for requesting advice or information from members.
On a recent trip to Japan I admired the beautifully light coloured pine furniture. I suspect it is hoop pine or similar. There were also some pieces made from what looked like walnut.
Does anyone know what these timbers are?
