About Our Organisation

North North Wiltshire Woodturners Association (NWWA) is a woodturning club serving woodturners in and around the North Wiltshire area. Our aim is to provide a club, which meets monthly, where we can share our common interest in woodturning, learn from each other, promote the craft and generally socialise with like-minded people. Our club nights frequently feature demonstrations from professional turners who travel from far and wide to give us the benefit of their wisdom and experience.

On 1st November 2006 a group of around 15 of us met together in the Crown Hotel, Wootton Bassett in order to explore the possibilities of moving on from chatting about woodturning over a pint in the lounge to operating as a club on a more formal footing.
By the next meeting we had secured a lathe, a hall (Hook Village Hall) to meet in and things seem to be moving forward nicely.

Visitors and New Members
It has taken over ten years for our numbers to have grown to a level where we have become a victim of our own success!
A recent influx of new members has pushed us well over our previously planned limit on member numbers. On Club meeting nights the car park is full - the meeting room has reached and exceeded it's capacity for satisfactory viewing and hearing of the presenter.
Very regrettably, we are now in a situation where we are unable to enrol any new members. Similarly, we are unable to welcome visitors either - as we would have the same problems with car parking and a packed hall.
Although we will be regularly reviewing the situation, it is doubtful it will improve in the near future. The committee will be endeavouring to achieve the member numbers target, so any member not renewing their annual subscription will not automatically mean a place becomes vacant.
