Wits Woodworkers Association
PO Box 1, Randpark Ridge, 2156, South Africa
Established in 1990, the Witwatersrand Woodworkers Association (WWA) is a non-profit organisation that exists to promote and maintain interest, skill and excellence in the working of wood. We support all facets of woodworking, and have amateurs from all walks of life and many professional woodworkers among our members.
Monthly meetings serve as a forum for the interests of our members. Specific interest-groups and workshops convene at various times during the month (see below for details). A single, annual fee allows access to club facilities and groups, with no additional fees levied. We welcome all that have an interest in woodworking, and thrive on new membership and fresh ideas. As from October 2020, we are meeting at the maker-space Made in Workshop as shown in the map below. Many woodworkers will know the location of Hardware Centre, which is about half a kilometre away to the East. The nearest off-ramp from the N1 highway is Malibongwe, from which you travel South until you reach the intersection with CR Swart Drive, as shown on the map below.
Membership of the Witwatersrand Woodworking Association (WWA) gives you access to Made in Workshop for WWA meetings, benches and machines, as well as access to the facilities at MiW at preferential rates. Members receive a monthly newsletter Crosscut that records the activities of the association and planned activities for the months ahead. Past issues of Crosscut can be found here.
