Skilled designers rely on skilled craftspeople. The relationship between an architect and their woodworker can often be the deciding factor between good architecture and standard building stock. Come join the Australian Institute of Architects and the Victorian Woodworkers Association for a panel celebrating this relationship, looking at the close links between the professions and how they have evolved.

Architects and woodworkers bring different skills and perspectives to the table. Architects have a strong understanding of design, while woodworkers have a deep knowledge of materials and construction. When these two disciplines work together, they can create beautiful, functional, and long-lasting buildings.

Hear—and perhaps see up close—examples of projects where architects and woodworkers have collaborated successfully, demonstrating the power of collaboration and the beauty of what can be achieved when these two disciplines come together.

Our panel of Architects and Woodworkers:

Vivienne Wong / Vivienne Wong Design x John Wardle / John Wardle Design

Raven Mahon / Furniture Maker x Lucinda McLean / NMBW

Patrick Holcombe / Douglas Fir Design x Nancy Beka / Studio Edwards
