What we're about
The Pacific Woodworkers Guild is a non-profit association of BC Craftspeople dedicated to excellence in woodworking. The Guild is a mix of enthusiastic woodworkers of all skill levels and from all walks of life. If you are not yet a woodworker but are interested in learning, the PWG is a great place to start.
We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of the month (except July and August). New members and guests are always welcome. As of Feb 2018 we are meeting at a new location - Tradeworks, which has a classroom, large screen TV and woodshop. Come and watch the presentations, get involved in the discussion and enjoy the refreshments.
