There’s def­i­nitely a sense of cu­rios­ity be­hind my in­ter­est . . . Maybe it’s be­cause we’re kids or be­cause there’s a chal­lenge in cre­at­ing the op­ti­mum de­sign.

‘‘It’s hard to get the tops spin­ning [ow­ing to com­pe­ti­tion tops be­ing larger], but once they start they go,’’ he said.

The Fes­ti­val of Wood­skills will be held at Pataka next month. It is a fam­ily event and Jansen and Smith hope all ages turn up.

Dur­ing the event, chil­dren will have a chance to dec­o­rate their own tops and have a go in the ‘‘spin zone’’.

The Guild of Wood­work­ers Welling­ton has its bi­en­nial Wood­turn­ing Plus Ex­hi­bi­tion and Fes­ti­val of Wood­skills at Pataka on July 11 and 12.

The ex­hi­bi­tion in the Bot­tle Creek Gallery will be open from July 2 till Au­gust 2. For in­for­ma­tion about the ex­hi­bi­tion and fes­ti­val, go to pataka.org.nz.
