Students polish up for upcoming fine woodworking exhibition
Okanagan College Media Release

Studio Woodworking May 2013Okanagan College is hosting one of the knottiest events in the region on May 17 at the Kelowna campus.

Knotty by Nature is an exhibition of fine work from the hands of several students who have spent the last eight months in the Studio Woodworking program at Okanagan College.

“Many of our students start out as total beginners, but by the end of the program, their levels of skill and creativity always impress me,” said instructor Tim Diebert.

Over that short period of time, students have been busy in the College’s fully equipped joinery shop learning the craft of cabinetmaking and woodworking with an emphasis on finer studio woodworking skills and techniques. These skills have been applied to a variety of objects such as desks, tables, cabinets and fine boxes, and jewelry, all of which will be on display from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Room E202 in the Centre for Learning.

“This is really a showcase of the students’ work,” said Diebert, who has 30 years full-time experience in the industry, having built everything from custom guitars to furniture, commercial millwork, movie sets, and even yacht interiors.

“I always tell my students that if they want to do fine work for a living, then being part of an exhibition is one of the best ways of getting your work and name out there.”

The year-end exhibition will include opportunities for the public to purchase some select items on display.
