Alaska Creative Woodworkers Assoc.


The Alaska Creative Woodworkers Association mission is:

  • To preserve, enhance and pass on to future generations the cultural traditions and techniques associated with the art of fine woodworking.

  • To promote wider community interest in woodworking as an art form and creative craft through meetings, shows, events, demonstrations, competitions and educational activities.

  • To provide guidance and aid for woodworkers who may draw upon the aggregate experience and knowledge of other Association members.

  • To create opportunities for fellowship with others who share an interest in wood working regardless of their sex, race, religion, or level of woodworking experience.

  • To give the general public greater opportunities to experience the visual and tactile pleasures unique to the appearance and appreciation of fine woodworking pieces.
