Waiuku Community Workshop

The Waiuku Community Workshop (WCW) is a space to share skills, share a laugh, and share resources. We host regular workshop events where the public can learn a new craft with a focus on using recycled or salvaged materials. The Workshop is open for member own and community projects. We also run the initiative, the Waiuku Tool Library where people can sign up through a low-cost membership to borrow a huge range of DIY tools.

The Tool Library is currently open Wednesdays 1 to 4pm. Visitors are welcome to check out the soon-to-be open Workshop space and become members of the Tool Library.

The Waiuku Community Workshop Trust is one of two owners of a subsidiary charitable company, Waiuku Zero Waste Ltd, which was developed to run the Waiuku Community Recycling Centre. This centre diverts waste from landfill through reusing and recycling resources of all types including wood and metal through to bric a brac and furniture which are sold through an onsite reuse shop called Waiuku Junktion. Profits from the business come back to the WCW Trust to be used to further our aims and support the local area.
