Townsville Area Woodturners Association (TAWA) was founded in 1988 to preserve the traditional art and craft of woodturning.

It has since association included the allied crafts of scroll sawing and pyrography. TAWA is a not for profit association and was incorporated as the “Townsville Area Woodturners Association Inc.” on the 5th October 1988 (under the Association Incorporation Act 1981),.

Our role in the community ...
TAWA hosts several workshop sessions during the week making its facilities available to club members at a very nominal fee. Our members recognise the diverse skills and abilities of our members. Its workshop facilities are suitable for access by disabled persons.

TAWA takes a very proactive role in the community and actively encourages participation in our crafts by women and whole family units and by supporting & co-operating with other individuals, groups, organizations with similar interests in promoting arts, crafts and cultural events.

TAWA is very active in a wide range of cultural and community events in the Townsville, Thuringowa and surrounding regions. Our members support and display or demonstrate our crafts at several events each year.

Monthly Workshop Meetings
are held generally on the 1st Saturday of the month at the TAWA club house in Grosvenor St Pimlico at 11.00am to 1.00pm.

Workshop Sessions
