Kapiti Woodworkers Guild

About us

The Kapiti Woodworkers Guild is an incorporated society for anyone who is interested in wood work. There is an emphasis on turning but all other types of woodwork are also discussed from time to time.

Membership includes experienced and distinguished woodworkers, but we also cater for the interests of beginners and people who come from a diverse range of age groups and professions.

The aim is to let people enjoy discussing woodwork through a friendly and helpful atmosphere, with one of the ideas being that you get out of it what you take part in. If you'd like to get involved, please consider joining up.

Listed below are examples of some of the activities that are organised by members for other members.


Eleven times a year, members receive the Kapiti Lancewood newsletter, by email.. The newsletter covers meeting notices, reports form some local groups, and events that may be of interest, and a For Sale and Wanted section.

Letters, tips, and small articles are welcome for publication. Publication is at the discretion of the editor, but every effort will be made to include submissions.


Every month except January, meetings are organised on the second Tuesday of the month. Meetings are held in Scot's Hall, Weka Road, Raumati.

As well as the regular meeting, there are a number of local groups who meet at members houses for a chat or a demo.

Even if you're not a member, you're welcome to come along and see what it's like. There's more information on the meetings page.


We have a growing collection of woodwork related newsletters, magazines, DVDs, etc. available to other members.

The library is open at the back of the room during monthly meetings.

Email mailing list

We have an email mailing list, so that you can recieve updates and announcements about events being organised from different people in the society via email. This is especially useful for learning about events that don't make it into the newsletter.
