Background

The Saskatchewan Woodworkers' Guild had its beginnings in 1978 when a group of woodworkers met informally to share ideas with others who had a common interest in working with wood. Since that time the guild has grown to include members from all walks of life, both professional woodworkers and hobbyists. Interests of the members include all phases of woodworking from carving, turning,  marquetry and cabinet making to finishing and restoration. We welcome anyone with an interest in "woody" things to join our guild.

Annual Wood Show

Every year, the Saskatchewan Woodworkers' Guild sponsors a show to display the works of its members. This show is open to the public for viewing, and its primary purpose is to educate the public and raise awareness of the beauty and diversity of works that can be created from wood. A cross-section of the works displayed at the show reflects the efforts of both the artisan and the novice woodworker. The annual show also provides members with an opportunity to improve their woodworking skills. Preparing a piece of work for display provides the motivation to strive for one's personal best and expand on their woodworking knowledge. It is also a platform to share the creativity and craftmanship with other members and the general public.  To find out more about the show, check out the Woodshows page. If you would like to watch a video of the items that were in Wood '10 or Wood '11, check out our Gallery page.

Monthly Meetings

Sharing of ideas and experiences by fellow crafts-people is one of the biggest benefits gained by members at monthly meetings. Meetings are held on the third Thursday of every month except except July and August. As an introduction to the Guild you are invited to attend a monthly meeting as a guest.

For information on meeting location and times, please check our calendar of
