Welcome to The Society of Arts and Crafts of new south wales

Brian Dawson

I have been working with wood for 25 years. I was trained at Sturt School for Wood in Mittagong
The organic nature of wood, its colours, densities, growth patterns, smells, textures and its tactile qualities all contribute to my love of the material. The never-ending learning of new techniques, experimentation with different methods and the hands –on approach adds to my passion.
 I like to make organic, free–flowing objects, designed on the go
“Designing and making and risk taking are all part of the same thing. Creativity is fundamentally a high-risk activity. It demands that we destroy as much as we create. Having to specify things way out ahead is too safe a way of going about it”  Brian
