GWW is now back to normal. We have resumed our monthly meetings at Naenae college library on the first Tuesday of the month. Please come along and find out what we are doing in the next few months. New members are welcome and if you want to learn a new skill or hobby you can join one of our special interest groups in carving, wood turning, furniture making and green woodworking.
2021-2022 Wood Turning Courses
Full / No current vacancies
The Guild advertised 2 wood turning courses, an intensive course over 2 weekends, (Course #1) and the same course over a number of months (Course #2).
The response to the courses was good and both courses ended up fully booked.
The Guild will hold further courses and continues to take queries about availability, when we have enough interest we will schedule another course.
For reference, both had the same syllabus and will follow the National Association of Woodworkers Level 1 syllabus.
They are a project based course where each student is required to complete a set task which takes approximately 2 hours. Each student is asked to keep a log of their completed tasks and once they have completed all the Level 1 tasks they are eligible to start Level 2 training.
Typical Tasks include:
Lathe use and safety
Turning a small Bowl
Turning a Honey Dipper
More detail will be provided with the course notes.
Both courses offered a 50% discount to Guild members.
Not a Guild member?, anyone who has an interest in woodworking can become a Guild member, the annual membership fee is $60
If you had taken up the offer and join the Guild then your total cost will be $220 for course & membership.
The Guild will provide the training, the lathes & tools used, the wood used and any works you create will be yours to keep.
To enquire about future courses, please contact the Guild using the form at the bottom of this page.
The TurnAround Exhibition open day, 2020 held in early August at the Odlin Gallery, Hutt Art Society, saw a number of our members demonstrating various aspects of woodworking.
