What is the SWA

Studio Woodworkers Australia (SWA) is a national organisation dedicated to promoting and supporting professional designer makers working in wood. Founded in 2011, it comprises both Accredited Members and General Members. This Studio Woodworkers Australia (SWA) website provides a portal through which prospective clients can find professional designer/makers and artists whose work in wood is characterised by a high level of individuality and quality.

Buy directly from our members

Studio Woodworkers Australia offers a comprehensive Directory of Members, where you can browse, select and contact professional and experienced makers directly, to buy or order their work. Some have websites showing designs that can be ordered. Visit our shop…

Commission a member

If you have a particular purpose in mind, you can ask a selected maker to design and make a piece specifically for you. The process of Commissioning items made in wood from a skilled professional woodworker in this way offers an engaging and rewarding collaboration between you and the maker.

If you are looking for a special piece of furniture or woodwork to buy, order or commission, which features excellent design, making, finishing and after-purchase service, then the Membership Directory and Gallery of SWA is the place to start your search.
