Our Library has also been translocated and holds a good array of books, magazines, and video tapes.library

The building has been designed for the disabled to take part with wheel chair access and appropriate toilet facilities provided

We have a comfortable area for Guild meetings, with a well appointed kitchen for preparing the indispensable cuppa and light snacks.

These facilities are now well used by the Guild for its monthly meetings, plus regular use from its sub groups including Wood turners, Carving, Scroll saw, Intarsia and Marquetry etc and an increasing demand from school students and both day and night adult training classes

Did you know that wood suitable for turning is often destroyed by its NZ owners i.e. removing and burning an old peach tree or any of the hundreds of tree species grown in NZ, including NZ Native timbers.

Instead of discarding this valuable asset why not contact our Guild to see if your old wood could be used to make another ageless piece of art that will extend the life of your tree for many years to come!

Email the Guilds 'wood' officer
Mike McCarthy (07) 575 2991
To discuss the possible brighter future for your unwanted wood!
