Visions in Wood 2020
A Story of Creativity
Generally, every two years, the Vancouver Island Woodworkers’ Guild mounts a show of works created by its 150 members. Their most recent show was a challenge, as COVID-19 forced them to take a different approach and put on a virtual show. Phil Makin (show coordinator), Frank Letchford (show committee) and Bruce Thomson (web guy) worked to display to the general public the guild’s work online, as they didn’t want all the great work of their members to not be seen. Here are some highlights from the show. To view all the pieces in the virtual show, go to viwg.com and select Visions in Wood 2020.
