Wits Woodworkers Association

PO Box 1, Randpark Ridge, 2156, South Africa

 

Established in 1990, the Witwatersrand Woodworkers Association (WWA) is a non-profit organisation that exists to promote and maintain interest, skill and excellence in the working of wood.

We support all facets of woodworking, and have amateurs from all walks of life and many professional woodworkers among our members.

Monthly meetings serve as a forum for the interests of our members. Specific interest-groups and workshops convene at various times during the month (see below for details). A single, annual fee allows access to all facilities and groups, with no additional fees levied. We welcome all that have an interest in woodworking, and thrive on new membership and fresh ideas.

The Living Link is a halfway house organisation that facilitates the integration of intellectually impaired individuals into society, by promoting independent living in a sheltered environment. The WWA is using the training hall for at the Living Link for meetings. 

The workshops are at our workshop in Albertskroon, see the map below for directions: (Google Earth insisted on calling the location "Randburg" when it is fact in Johannesburg...)

    

In the NW corner of the map is Alberts Farm Park, and to the SE is the Jewish section of Westpark Cemetery. Driving from Northcliff Corner, West along Milner Ave, the road becomes 5th St. You will pass the sports club on the right and cross over the Montgomery Spruit, a tributary of the Braamfontein Spruit. After passing an Engen garage on the left, you will see the bottle store and Wood ‘n Whotnots (green wall) on the right. Between them is  9th St, and the new workshop is at the back of the yard. 

Courtesy of Google Streetview, you can see the yard entrance is in the white wall, to the right of Wood 'n Wotnots on the corner.
