I quite enjoyed that there was different types of art from different types of people, not just one kind. There was lots of different artists. - Kane
This visit encouraged and inspired our students to see beyond and past what some people may see as ugly, rubbish or useless. Chris taught us that “art is like a seed, it can grow into something amazing”.

I enjoyed looking at the pens made from wood and watching him working on the lathe, it was satisfying just watching - Cameron
Our visit to the art gallery demonstrated that nature give us the resources we work with. We saw some photographic images that were beautiful flower petals frozen in water. By doing this the artist/photographer was able to photograph the natural shapes and colours of her piece. The solid bubbles emphasised in the image were just spectacular.

Chris, the artist, talked about being a woodturner like being a surgeon. You have tools and precision. He demonstrated his craft in the workshop next door. We were able to see Chris is action as he turned a small, cylinder shaped , tree trunk into a beautify wooden bowl.
