Living Wood Fair

Saturday 21st-Sunday 22nd April 2018

Who doesn’t love wood? The burrs and knots and grooves and rings?
Set in the lush environments of Totara Whenua & Fairholme Gallery in East Takaka the fair encompasses four main areas encircled by a beautiful cornucopia of trees. The main arena hosts the market and food stalls, kids’ activities, natural building area and information hub, with live musical acts throughout the day and locally-brewed beverages available. The workshop zone features indoor and outdoor creative workshops while the Ministry of Primary Industries’ Talk Zone will hold inspiring and informative talks. The final zone is in the historic Fairholme Gallery displaying tree themed artistic creations.
The fair focuses on four key themes: All aspects of growing trees and turning them into timber; environmental sustainability, care and protection; creative arts, wood and bush crafts; and natural shelters and homes.
The Living Wood Fair will appeal to anyone who likes wood - and their families. So come along for some music, drinks, education, innovation and wood, wood, wood.
