Hunter Design School Talk

Stu was invited to present at the Hunter Design School last night, as part of its own going "Inside Industry" series of talks. The Hunter Design School is run by Donna Burrell, who we worked with on Scarborough Winery, and runs a series of accredited long and short courses on interior design and photo media. In addition to the ubiquitous powerpoint, Stu also brought along some timber samples and performed the very simple but effective "look at what happens when you spray water on a thin piece of timber" trick. By the end of the talk it had curled over on itself - a potent reminder of how timber never really dies and that designers need to take into account movement whenever they use timber. Thanks to Jess for organising, it was fun!
