We are a group of men and women that are enthusiastic hobby woodcrafters and are keen to share our love of wood and skills with anyone who wishes to join us.
We have been active since 1987 and, in any given year, we have between 80 and 100 members of all ages and skill levels. We have a purpose-built workshop located at 3 Cherokee Place, Mount Maunganui, Tauranga which is well-equipped with equipment and tools. Our Carving, Turning, Scroll Saw & Open Workshop Groups all meet each month. On the 3rd Saturday of every month, at 1.30pm, we have a general meeting when we welcome visitors and members to a demonstration along with refreshments. Our Guild Brochure defines meeting times, contact details and our annual fees. Men and women are encouraged to join us and share the joy of woodcrafting projects.
Annual Show - November 2022
Our November 2022 Show was held at the Mount Sports Centre on the corner of Hull Rd and Maunganui Rd on the 17th of November through to the 21st of November. In 2022 we ran the Show as part of the 2022 BOP Garden and Arts Festival and had Trade stalls, member exhibits and member sales stands. Refreshments were available. On the afternoon of Thursday 17th November we ran live working displays of woodcarving, woodturning, and scrollsaw work for members of the public who wanted to come along and have a go at one of these woodcrafts.
