How people practice evolving tradition and new futures
 
How people practice evolving tradition and new futures

The following videos and articles provide examples of how people within the industry “live” these values in their day to day practice and lives.

Peter Laidlaw

Peter Laidlaw is the classic tale of “one who came to Tasmania to build a wooden boat and stayed”.  25 years later, he teaches traditional wooden boat building, repairs and restores wooden boats.  Headquartered at the Wooden Boat Centre in Franklin, Tasmania, Peter is President of the Living Boat Trust.

His love of traditional wooden boats, the Tasmanian Special Timbers and their variety of characteristics and uses within boats is strengthened by his view of timber as the “ultimate renewable resource” the thousands of years of wooden boat building and their use in exploration, trade and contribution to Tasmania.

Brad overflows with ideas, these translate into designs around shape, surfaces, weight and balance creating objects that combine art and functionality.  Many have ideas, few are able to transform them into unique, intriguing and beautiful objects, Brad is one of them.

Mark Gilbert Handcrafted Electric Guitars

A persistent partner and a chance encounter with a renowned Blues guitar artist at a Lauderdale pub provided the catalyst for Mark Gilbert to start making guitars seriously and fulfil a life-long ambition.

Originally a primary school teacher, Mark later moved into graphic design.  Some 17 years ago he established his own design/promotional items business but a lifelong interest in music and guitars is where he saw his future.  So, Mark started making guitars, primarily electric guitars, using Tasmanian Special Timbers.
