Training – Every Wednesday evening the Club is open between 7.00 and 9.00 and the time is devoted to training. Whilst this mainly appeals to younger members
Commissions – Having existed in the community for over 25 years locals know where we are and what we can do. This results in frequent requests for us to make special projects for people that they cannot obtain elsewhere. Recent examples include converting a shopping carriage into an artist’s studio, a solidly built Macracarpa table and bench for a public area and a sales cart for a local charity.
SOURCES OF INCOME
- The Club supports itself by various means in order to cover the costs associated with owning its own premises. For subscriptions we offer three grades of membership for full, associate and trainee grades which are currently $60, $50 and $30 respectively.
- The Club also keeps a percentage of the proceeds of sale from members work in our annual shop and as of last year, the Clutha Arts and Crafts Fair.
- The Club also accepts commissions from members of the community and surplus wood and scrap material is also sold as firewood which benefits both us as well as purchasers who normally buy it from us cheaper than elsewhere.
