VWA Story

The Victorian Woodworkers Association Inc, founded in 1979, is the leading woodcraft guild in Victoria. Its diverse membership includes professional designer/makers and wood artists, serious amateurs, students and industry organisations.

The principle aims are to:

  1. promote the design and making of fine woodwork
  2. expand the markets for fine woodwork
  3. support woodwork as a viable career
  4. foster excellence in woodwork production and design
  5. facilitate networking between woodworkers

To fulfil these objectives the VWA holds exhibitions, master classes, workshops, and programs covering a wide range of wood related topics at its bimonthly meetings, and this website.
