Since 1 March COVID-19 risks required face-to-face activities at the Guild to be suspended. In June Tasmania has low COVID-19 risks and your Committee hopes it will be able to safely hold the next Guild meeting from 7 pm on Tues 14 July in the large upstairs classroom, with safe spacing and hygiene precautions. Until then, watch this space, stay healthy and enjoy more time in your workshop!
The Guild, founded in 1986, is an organisation of around 50 people who love wood and love to make things with it. We welcome new members, especially young men and women woodworkers into our ranks.
Our home and workshop is a spare classroom at Cosgrove High School in Glenorchy.
Guild activities include workshop sessions, site visits and excursions, member's show and tell, guest speakers and demonstrators and participation in fairs and exhibitions. The Guild has a library of woodworking books, magazines and videos, and a regular newsletter.
The Guild workshop is well equipped with benches, modern machinery (edger, thicknesser, sanders, four lathes, drills, table saw, router table, two bandsaws and hand tools), comprehensive dust extraction and an office. This workshop is available for use by all of our members.
The following activities are regularly conducted at our workshop:
1. Box making,
3. Toy boat and plane sessions, in preparation for a children's activity at the Hobart Show
These are photos of our newly purchased equipment for the Guild workshop, these will assist the members in their woodworking projects.
