More about the project
Wooden boats are both beautiful works of art and time machines that carry our island’s maritime history with them. These vessels and their stories continue to live on thanks to you, their Custodians. Your hard work, dedication and investment in these vessels and their stories is the reason why our island is so alive and so rich in maritime history.
Over the next two years I will be travelling the state to collect photographs and stories for this new work, which will culminate in a signature exhibition at the 2023 Australian Wooden Boat Festival. I hope to be able to display a broad section of our wooden boat culture in this project, which may also become a book as well as an exhibition.
