Events and Classes
Since 1988 the Club has been active in the community, with opportunities to learn fun and rewarding woodcrafts, through classes, demonstrations and participation in shows and expos. Take a look at our upcoming events. Membership also includes access to our classes and workshops.

Our Clubhouse
From humble beginnings as a woodturning club to a complete facility with equipment for all types of woodcraft, members share in keeping the shop safe and tidy. Visit us to see our lathes, power tools, timber stock and more. Members are introduced to new equipment with an induction and safety session. Members also have access to an ever-growing library for browsing or researching a new technique.

Meetings
Meetings are held regularly where all members attending are fully informed of current matters involving the Club. Participation on any relevant to the operation and development of the Club is welcomed. Constructive ideas can be put forward and debated in a non-argumentative manner. ALL MEMBERS ARE WELCOME.

To learn more, stop by the shop for a visit, read our Facebook page, or send a question through our contact form.
