The Guild is an association incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act of the Queensland Government. Its primary objectives are the support of the North Pine Country Park, (part of which is now known as Old Petrie Town), as well as furtherance of all trades.

Membership is open to all interested adults, (over 18), and is not limited to tradespeople. The workshop currently opens on Tuesday mornings and on Sunday, in conjunction with the Markets held at the Park.

Over the years since establishment, the emphasis has moved from building within the Park. The current activities are the making of wooden toys to give to charities at Christmas, engineering parts for the Steam and Vintage Machinery interest group, furniture restoration on occasions, non ferrous castings for members, sporting and charitable associations, and the public. Castings have been sent around Australia and across the world.
