Fine furniture on display at the Library

Fine furniture by UCOL diploma students is now on display at the Palmerston North Public Library.

The work, by first and second year students studying for the Diploma in Furniture Design and Making, will be on display for one week, from Wednesday 28 November, on the first floor of the library,

Lecturer Andy Halewood says around 15 pieces are on show, including bedside cabinets, linen cupboards, occasional tables and a dresser,

One of the star exhibits is the occasional table made from black poplar inlaid with swamp rimu that won first prize for UCOL student Richard Morris at the National Wood Skills Festival in Kawerau this year.

The facilities and equipment at UCOL’s Palmerston North Furniture School are amongst the best in the southern hemisphere. Graduates move into positions in boutique and studio workshops, in antique restoration and repair, on film and stage sets and in specialised display building.
