Welcome to Wood Art Workshops Home Page
Wood Art Workshops is a talented collective of gifted carvers, turners and wood artists. Wood Art is different to many other clubs firstly because it does not have a committee. It does have three officers - Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer. At each meeting work stops for five or ten minutes when the Chairman brings matters to the members' attention for information and/or to get a decision on anything needing approval, as the club is member lead.
An annual general meeting is held in May when things are dealt with in a more formal way. Membership subscriptions are considered. Subscription is currently £38 per annum.
On any club night, members can be seen chatting about new projects, social issues, new ideas or just helping each other. There is laughter, banter and leg-pulling with no offence.
Initiatives are put forward by members and many good ideas come to fruition. We pride in being a little different.
About twice a year members have the opportunity of watching a nationally recognised expert demonstrating his or her special ability in wood art. There is an annual auction when members donate unwanted goods. The proceeds go towards club expenses. A weekly raffle with prizes donated by members adds funds to provide new or replacement equipment. On three occasions a year carvers, turners and other Wood Art Workshops members decide upon a charity to support and donate items they have made themselves. A busy and well-equipped club with a lot happening.
