Upcoming Woodturning Events

segmented woodturners logoSegmented Woodturners Symposium

The landmark 1st Segmenting Symposium in November 2008 was a resounding success. From that humble beginning of approximately 100 attendees, segmentedwoodturners.org was born. As a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners, the club – with members from around the world – has become the driving force in segmented woodturning.

The 3rd Segmented Symposium is being held on October 18-21, 2012 at the Horizon Resort and Casino in Stateline (Lake Tahoe) Nevada.

Now is your opportunity to be a part of another great event dedicated solely to segmenting, set among the splendor that is Lake Tahoe. Join us for three days of “Reaching for the Sky”. Featured demonstrators include: John Beaver, Andy Chen, Dennis Daudelin, Ray Feltz, Lloyd Johnson, Bill Kandler, Dennis Keeling, Craig Kirks, Phil Miller, Michael Mode, Dave Peck, Jim Rodgers, Mike Shuler, and Malcolm Tibbetts

The Florida Woodturning Symposium (FWS) is the largest woodturning event in Florida and is held each year at the Lake Yale Baptist Conference Center. A self contained, wooded campus where you are immersed in nothing but woodturning for 2 1/2 days. This is one of the best ways to take the next step in your woodturning. The next symposium will be held February 1-3, 2013.

The Florida Woodturning Symposium began in December 2001 through the efforts of three Florida Chapters of the American Association of Woodturners. Attendance has grown each year thanks to the high quality of our demonstrators and our Hands-on-Workshops.

A large trade show offers the woodturning “goodies” you’ve been looking for, both new woodturning tools and a great selection of wood for the woodturner. In addition the FWS features a great auction and raffle and the chance to win an Education Grant to one of the great national Craft Schools or a one-on-one workshop with a talented Florida woodturning teacher.

The FWS’s mission is to promote the art of woodturning through the annual symposium and other events.
