Bungendore Wood Works Gallery opened September 14 in 1983. Thirty years later an exhibition featuring the work of 29 designer makers and artists will open that does not look to the past, but to the future. The title of the exhibition is NEXT. This is something all involved ponder, not only the very nature of the objects they design and make, but possible new directions for their practice and indeed their lives.

This exhibition displays the work of seventeen accredited members of Studio Woodworkers Australia (SWA) which was founded in 2011 and comprises both accredited members and general members. As a national organisation, its role is to promote and support professional designer-makers working in wood.
Accredited members are all well-known for their exemplary design ideas and skills in producing high-end, one-off pieces and for undertaking commissions.
The premise for this exhibition was to offer the members an opportunity to expand their audiences and create original production pieces which would appeal to home-owners looking for well-considered, affordable designs and who appreciate the values of quality of handcrafted items – in this instance, furniture.
These principles form the basis of an invitation to visitors to cast their votes in the People’s Choice Award. They are invited to vote for one item that they think best demonstrates the purpose of the exhibition, that is:
- an innovative idea
- ideal for the home
- a good design suitable for production
- well made
- affordable for home owners
