Welcome to the Eurobodalla Woodcraft Guild (Woodies) site.

On New Years Eve 2019, our premises,all materials and equipment were destroyed by the Mogo firestorm.
For about 10 years prior, we had been kindly hosted by the Original Gold Rush Colony at Mogo.
Sadly the Colony was also severely damaged as was much of the greater Mogo area itself.

We sincerely thank the colony owner, Maureen Nathan and Managers,Georgina Jackson and Corey Peterson, as well as their staff, for allowing us to share their beautiful environs and have such a productive collaboration for so long.

Since the fires we have been busy seeking a new location and funding to enable our reconstruction.We are keen to keep our members together and engaged.To this end we have held regular Executive and General meetings since early this year.

We have received a range of donated used/as new tools,wood and machinery. See the Our Supporters page. Our biggest 'good problem to have' was where to put it all.Thanks to generous donations and offers we have been able to purchase and take advantage of ,storage space for the interim .

Since the COVID-19 contagion and accompanying restrictions there has of course been restricted face-to-face interaction between members. However, we remain highly interactive,at a safe distance,through the marvels of technology.
We're looking forward to getting through this latest challenge safely,looking after each other and continuing to work hard to secure a new home,buildings and equipment.
     

Below is the link to our Go Fund Me page if you or anyone you know would like to assist our recovery with a donation.
