Open Day: Thor's Hammer

Open Day

The Thor’s Hammer Open Studio will take visitors through our workshop on a timber recycling journey, starting with arrival from the demolition site through to the fine furniture produced by our craftspeople. First our Recycling team will demonstrate nail removal, species identification and grading techniques. Then there will be an introduction to the big machines in our dressing workshop and fire briquette production from waste sawdust. Next, a chance to learn about making furniture with the Joinery team, and finally a tour of our furniture showroom and gallery with Thor to learn the details and thinking behind our furniture designs.

DESIGN Canberra acknowledges the Ngunnawal people as the traditional custodians of the ACT and surrounding areas. We honour and respect their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this country and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region. We aim to respect cultural heritage, customs and beliefs of all Indigenous people.
