Join a Tour of Thor’s Hammer for Design Canberra

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

12 Nov 2022 Once Only Event

Join Thor’s Hammer as they host an Open Workshop as part of DESIGN Canberra Festival 2022 run by CraftACT, running a series of workshop tours that’ll bring you behind the scenes of Hammer HQ.

In the tour, you’ll learn about the skill and care it takes to safely salvage and recycle timber, as well as the history behind it. You’ll meet members of the team from different sections of the business, from recycling, dressing & joinery, to the sales and office staff, to the guy himself, Thor Diesendorf!

You’ll have the opportunity to check out the workshop, lumber yard, showroom and upstairs gallery, and there will also be time for questions. This is a really great opportunity to get to know Thor’s Hammer a little better, and would also be a great thing to bring a teenager to (must be supervised) to get them fired up about a career in sustainability, design, timber recycling, furniture-making or joinery.
