The Olympia Woodworkers Guild started in 2017 with the mission of developing a community of woodworkers in the Thurston County area. In 2021, we have grown to over sixty diverse members. We welcome all levels of woodworkers, from beginners to professionals. As a program of Arbutus Folk School we provide education, monthly meetings featuring expert woodworkers, and community support. We are currently meeting via Zoom but will again meet in-person when restrictions from COVID19 are relaxed. Find more at
