The Bendigo Woodturners Easter Exhibition is back for another spin.

Club president Harald Mai said 20 members would be exhibiting and there would be active demonstrations of the wood turning.

“Many people just come in to watch the activities,” Mr Mai said. He added the items on display are unique and beautifully finished.

Mr Mai said the basic criteria for wood turning was that any machine can be used to make something out of the wood.

This could include wood carving or using a scroll saw.

The club has an age range from 12 to 92 and includes both men and women.

They also contribute to community projects such as making stands for Bendigo’s new dragon, Dai Gum Loong.   

The display will be at the MacGillivray Hall Bendigo Tafe, 136 McCrae Street on Good Friday – 10am-5pm, Saturday, 10am-4pm and Sunday, 10am-4pm.

The Easter raffle will be drawn on Sunday at 3pm.

The club meets regularly at 104 Eaglehawk Road, Long Gully. For enquiries go to
