The Woodturners Association of Western Australia (WAWA) is a non-profit body incorporated under statute and has a membership in the order of 500 turners.
The Association has conducted workshops in over 30 metropolitan and country centres and as a result there are now 6 metropolitan and 6 groups established in the country, all conducting their own monthly programs.
As a community based organisation, the Association and the groups respond to many requests for demonstrations at Shows, Fairs and Fetes, of members working at their craft - the events at which demonstrations are staged are numerous and diverse but must meet certain basic requirements for safety reasons.
While the formation of the Association has led to the growth of the number of turners, there is ample evidence of improvement in skills and creative talent among members as many members have successfully exhibited at National level.
A trait amongst woodturners is the willingness to share knowledge and experience with others and a keenness to tutor and mentor those new to the craft.
