If you were to take a good look around your home it is almost certain that you are going to see many wood compositions. Then beyond this is the wood that has been used in this structure that you cannot see. There is no doubt you feel confident in the structural integrity of your home, which means you are relying on the wood that it is comprised of to provide this.
Wood is used in so many different fashions that it is often taken for granted. There are replacement materials that can be used in place of wood, but very few have the character that wood is comprised of.
To keep the importance of wood alive and to extend the creativity in which it can be used there are important events like the Bergen International Wood Festival. This is a yearly event that is not only gaining in importance but popularity. It extends the use of wood far beyond what most give it credit for.
While in your home you are most likely using most of the wood comprised there for the home structure and furniture you may not realize the growing value it has in the creative arts world. If you ever get the chance to attend the Bergen International Wood Festival there is no doubt you will form a new level of respect for this commodity.
The festival has a competition that allows participants to construct a project out of wood within a specific period of time. These structures are really diversified and many end up being beautiful pieces of art. They will certainly get you to thinking how you can expand the use of wood in your home, to enhance it both artistically and structurally. The completed pieces remain on display so even if you can’t attend the festival, it is well worth a trip to Bergen after the festival to see the most current creations.
