A free ‘Art in Wood’ exhibition, which is being displayed opposite Ely Cathedral until the end of August, was opened by the leader of the district council.
Councillor Charles Roberts, Leader of the East Cambridgeshire District Council, opened the event on Saturday, August 18 by sawing through a piece of wood as opposed to cutting the ribbon.
The event, held at the Cathedral Centre by the Ely Guild of Woodturners, will run until Monday, August 27. The guild has been exhibiting since 2004.
A spokesman said: “The name of the exhibition was brought to the table by Brian Wallace after a holiday in France where he came upon an exhibition called “L’art du bois”.
“The exhibition was full of turned and carved woodwork created by just one man.

“So, Art in Wood was formed in 2007, with the aim of presenting a high-class exhibition and sale that would be more sophisticated than a standard craft fair.
“Art in Wood has continued in the same format ever since, with the addition of live woodturning demonstrations on some days.
