A not for profit club, fostering an interest in woodwork throughout the local community.

Our club has approximately 90 members including both men and women.  Groups are formed to meet the interests of the members - our common interest is a passion for woodworking.  Current groups include cabinet making, carving, woodturning, pyrography and scroll sawing, all groups operate from the club house.  The Club has a monthly general meeting of all members on the 1st Wednesday at 8pm in the CFA meeting room on Ironbark Rd, Yarrambat - visitors are most welcome.  The club house is next door. 



We are involved in club events during the year with our Annual Exhibition being the highlight of the year.  We also assist other community groups and associations on a regular basis and others on an ad hoc basis.

Whatever your skills, project ideas or ability we have them all covered. Check out the Club's special interest groups below.

Great news! The club has now reopened for all members. There are some essential rules as in all other council buildings for a safe working environment but all group sessions and activities can now carry on as normal.

Great work at home during the lockdown

Well it looks like a lot of members have been very busy at home during the six months of the club's lock down and these pictures taken from the EDWC private facebook group page are only a sample of the fine work posted.

There are a few sessions each week where any club member may attend and work on their own particular project or collaborative projects.

Woodturning Group

We have a number of very experienced woodturners and two different group sessions catering for all levels of wood turning, with enough lathes of various sizes for all types of projects.

Pyrography Group

The word comes from the Greek “pur” (fire) and “graphos” (writing), meaning writing with fire. In modern practise, this is more drawing than writing, with some artists creating truly fantastic pieces of art.

This group meets weekly to work on the particular children’s toy that will be available for all children attending the annual exhibition to assemble and take home.
