The more experienced or just the more gung-ho are welcome to try their hand at a major sculpture of whatever subject they choose. So give this some thought and research.
Bim’s first memory of working with timber is making a boat out of a grape box when he was four years old. Alas this vessel did not survive its maiden voyage! Luckily Bim’s technical skills and eye for design have improved since the grape box years. In the following 45 years, Bim has dedicated his life to making fine timber furniture and sculpture. He has had 11 different workshops and is currently building his twelfth. Bim has taught woodwork at Camp Creative in Bellingen, through Adult and Community Education, with Bellingen Community Arts Council and is now teaching furniture design up to diploma level at the North Coast Institute of TAFE. He is also President of Designers Connect that has grown from the TAFE diploma course. Bim has exhibited widely, and has furniture and sculptures in collections throughout Australia’s east coast and some pieces bought by international collectors.
