from 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM
Every year the AWA hosts a Woodturning Symposium where we present Master Turners with International or National status. You do not have to be an experienced turner to gain education, tips, and skill building techniques from this event, nor do you have to be a member of our Association to enjoy this educational experience.
What to expect at the Symposium
Our Association charges $50 per day if paid in advance or $60 per day if paid at the door. This helps to cover the cost the Association incurs to host the event. You may purchase pre-paid admittance to the Symposium by visiting our Symposium Admittance web page.
There will be two woodturning demonstrations taking place simultaneously, one in each bay area of Hardware Specialities, Inc. You may sit and watch one demonstration, or you may walk between them. Each demonstration period runs about one and a half hours, followed by a break for about fifteen minutes. There is about a forty-five minute lunch break between 12:15 and 1:30 PM, then there is one demonstration with a final drawing of door prizes (must be present to win door prize drawings). The event should be concluded around 4:00 pm on Sunday.
Please see our Featured Demonstrators web page to learn more about our demonstrators.
