The Joy of Wood

For 15 years The Joy of Wood in various locations has been providing the only service in Perth dedicated solely to teaching traditional woodworking hand skills and techniques to people of all ages. These are the kinds of skills which have proven themselves for centuries! Until the end of 2023, we operated our Heritage Woodcraft Centre in Canning Vale for 9 years. Currently we are running workshops for kids and for women at the Stirling Women's Shed facility in Scarborough.
