Bec Evans is one of 43 fine woodworkers who are showcased in the exhibition Making a Seat at the Table: Women Transform Woodworking. We conducted a brief interview via email to find out more about her work.
Why is this exhibition important to you?
It’s just wonderful! The exhibition came right as I move home to Australia and am about to go out on my own as a woodworker. The opening night was fantastic – I’m grateful to be at this point in my career and have had the opportunity to meet so many talented and inspiring women woodworkers and learn from their stories. The work is phenomenal to see in person and the varied engagement across craft, design and art demonstrates a breadth of approaches that I hadn’t been aware of. I came away with a new confidence that I do have a place in the world of woodworking and a new knowledge of the diverse paths there are to follow.
