Based in Berwick, just south east of Melbourne, Victoria, the club commenced with a group of 6 people in June 1986, meeting at various venues before establishing a permanent home at the Old Cheese Factory, 34 Homestead Road, Berwick. Currently the club has over 100 members. We have great facilities and work shop with a good range of woodworking machinery. New members are more than welcome, so if you have a passion for wood work or would like to learn, give us a call or drop in for a visit. The contact details are at the bottom of this page. All ages are welcome.

After an extremely successful Expo in 2021, the Berwick Woodworkers Club will once again conduct an exhibition of it’s members work on the weekend of 8-10 July 2022. It will run from 5pm to 8pm on the Friday, and from 9am to 5pm on both the Saturday and Sunday. The venue will be the club’s meeting rooms and workshop in the grounds of The Old Cheese Factory, 34 Homestead Road, Berwick. The exhibition will contain a diverse range of items, covering a broad spectrum of woodworking activities, including wood turning, rocking horse making, furniture, toys, carving, and pyrography or wood burning. Some of the more than 800 toys made by club members each year for charitable groups at Christmas time will also be on display. The exhibition will feature work at all levels of expertise, from beginner to national award winners, and there will be live demonstrations of the different disciplines of woodworking throughout the exhibition. There will also be many items available for sale at very reasonable prices. This exhibition will take place as part of the City Of Casey’s wider Winter Arts Festival, a celebration of the activities of a diverse range of groups within the community involved with the creative arts, including painting, music, performance, and artisan activities. The club will also conduct a Farmers’ Market in the grounds of The Old Cheese Factory on the Saturday morning. The weekend promises to be one that will appeal to a wide range of people, so we are keen to see as many as possible at this free event.
