Directory of Makers
Studio Woodworkers Australia is a comprehensive directory of makers where you can browse and contact makers directly to buy their work. Alternatively, a maker you choose will design and make a piece specifically for you. Commissioning items made in wood from a skilled professional offers an engaging and rewarding collaboration between you and the maker. The maker has artistic and design skills as well as knowledge about and expertise with the materials and finishes that suit your needs. The commissioning process involves providing drawings and possibly models of the proposal. Once a design is agreed, you get a quote confirming the design details, the cost and a timeframe for completion. Working with a SWA member results in a handmade item in timber of lasting quality and value, to be enjoyed now and by future generations. Accredited members have been peer assessed to high standards, and assure clients of the best quality of designing, making and service. Accreditation also bestows the title of Accredited Studio Woodworker (ASW). General members are also professional designer/makers who have not yet submitted to the accreditation process.
