The Royal Society of Tasmania Northern Branch presents a public lecture by Dr Ashley Bird: Bush Carpentry and the Jimmy Possum Tradition

The Jimmy Possum chairmaking tradition has a living and continuous 150-year connection to the landscape, history, and people of the Meander Valley of Northern Tasmania. The mysterious artisan who reputably lived and worked out of a hollowed tree, gave the tradition its name. He was followed by other chairmakers, who maintained yet reinterpreted the traditions defining design.

This presentation will draw out this history and outline what makes this tradition important and how it is remaining relevant.
