The members of the AAW chapter in Great Falls, Montana have been hard at work planning for a symposium in September. They have just announced that they are bringing in Jimmy Clewes as their demonstrator and they are very excited about the opportunity. And they are willing to share that opportunity with you.
Jimmy Clewes is an internationally acclaimed woodturning artist and instructor. Originally from England, he now makes his home in the United States and, when not travelling to give demonstrations, offers woodturning instruction in his new, fully-equipped workshop in Las Vegas, Nevada. When asked what drives him, Jimmy Says:
“My energy comes from those around me. When I can stir the creativity of one’s mind, that for me is very satisfying. As with any artform, expression is only limited as one’s mind and I want to ‘raise the bar’ and create an awareness of the artform that has been virtually unknown to most people.”
The Great Falls Turners Symposium is scheduled for two days, September 24th and 25th, 2011 at the Hilton Garden Inn. Registration is $95 for the symposium with a $15 discount for registration before August 15th. Information, including hotel discounts, and the registration form can be found here.
