About Us

While the name implies we are woodturners, there is a whole lot more to the club than this one aspect of woodworking. 

The club's main aim is to promote the knowledge and skills of woodturning and allied crafts such as  pyrography, scroll saw, carving, furniture and toy making, within the general community, while enjoying the fellowship that comes from that common interest.

The club also participates in various activities within the region and around Victoria by demonstrating the various disciplines of woodworking and through sales of members' work. The main shows are:

  • Easter Exhibition at Bendigo TAFE McCrae Street;
  • Bendigo Leisurefest Roadshow;
  • Bendigo CraftAlive;
  • Bendigo Sheep and Wool Show;
  • Australia Day Celebrations at Lake Weeroona, Bendigo;
  • Seymour Alternative Farming Expo; and
  • Melbourne Timber, Tools & Artisan Show.

To encourage the youth to take up this hobby, we hold hands on activities for the Scouts and Venturers where each participant can try their hand at the various disciplines of woodworking.

No matter what your skill level is from professional to just wanting to learn how to work with wood there is something for everyone here at the Bendigo Woodturners.
