Busselton Woodturners Association

Brief History

 

In 1985 a group of 18 woodturners formed the Woodturners Association of Western Australia Inc (WAWA) to promote, foster and practice the art of woodturning.

 


The Woodturners Association is a not-for-profit incorporated body with  approximately 750 members.

 

The Association has conducted workshops in many metropolitan and country centres. As a result there are now 6 metropolitan and 6 country groups, all conducting their own monthly programs.

 

Many members have successfully exhibited at a national level.

 Motto:

Trees: While I grow let me live

When I die more pleasure I give

Meetings were initially held in member’s own workshops before obtaining the use of the Busselton Senior High School’s manual arts room, where they stayed until 2005.

 

The club room located at the rear of ArtGeo Gallery is fitted out with lathes and equipment for demonstrations and teaching.

Visitors are welcome to watch the turners at work on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

The Busselton Woodturners also meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday each month at 7pm

Examples of the group’s woodturning can purchased from the Courthouse, Artgeo Cultural Complex, 4 Queen Street, Busselton.
