Creative characters showed off their skills during the weekend at the 28th annual Goulburn Valley Woodworkers Show.

Shepparton’s Eastbank Centre was packed with woodworking displays and demonstrations from people across Victoria.

Goulburn Valley Woodworkers president Len Taylor said demonstrators came from near and far to show off their work.

‘‘This year the theme has been to try and have working exhibits because people like to see how things are made rather than having a static display,’’ Mr Taylor said.

While the club was originally called the GV Woodturners, Mr Taylor said the group recently decided to change its name.

‘‘We changed the name because we felt the need as a lot of members didn’t want to do woodturning they wanted to do general wood work,’’ he said.

The group had 36 demonstrators displaying their work and Mr Taylor said he was pleased with the turnout during the weekend.

With wooden figurines, utensils, tables, roses, toys and Little Tats dolls up for sale Mr Taylor said their was something on offer for everyone.

A highlight of this year’s show included a 3D printer, which was making it’s own wooden figurines.

‘‘We have added a bit of variety to this year’s show because a lot of the ladies come along with their husbands and there is not much for them to see,’’ he said.

‘‘People can come and check out what is on the shelves and grab their bargains or presents for people.’’
