The Guild offers participatory instruction in the basics of woodworking through this Group.  It covers the essential skills that are required in most woodworking endeavours.

The activities of the Group are designed to accommodate beginners and those returning to woodwork after an absence.  Each meeting addresses an issue that will arise when approaching a project or task and then works towards completing that project.

 Initially, members joining the group will be encouraged to develop their skills with hand tools and further instruction and guidance with power tools will be incorporated into activities. When members are comfortable they can progress to the Woodworking 201 SIG.

The Group meets on the first and third Mondays of each Month (except for January) from 6 pm until about 9 pm.

Harry Brown is the coordinator of the Group and he can be contacted at: basics@woodcraftguild.org.au .
