This two day lab provides a practical introduction to woodwork through the guided production of an exhibition support.

Delivered by maker Luke Boyle, participants will produce an ovular plinth with a removable lid. This intensive making presents an opportunity for participants to familiarise themselves with key processes and tools involved in producing an exhibition support.

The workshop aims to assist those approaching exhibition making as an independent artist practitioner, or those working as technicians roles seeking professional development. Materials will be provided by The Kit.
