2013 World Wood Day has four woodcraft activities in Tanzania, Local Woodcarving Competition, African Woodcarving Show, International Woodcarving Show and Woodturning Show, to support the theme of this year, "A Cultural Approach to Achieve Wood is Good." Outstanding artisans from Tanzania and other African countries, plus woodcarving and woodturning artists from outside Africa will be invited to perform and exchange their excellent skills and creativity during the World Wood Day woodcraft event.
The four woodcraft activities that bring out the theme "Wood: Art, Joy, and Culture" will continue for two days and a half. Local and international woodcarvers and turners will be formally presenting their artwork to judges and audiences about their ideas for the creations at the end of the program.
These activities are held to encourage the public to take a closer look at wood. We hope to bring all the participants a profound experience that would lead to a daily practice to appreciate the natural beauty and the beneficent nature of wood.
