September 27-29, 2024

We are starting to plan for 2024, so save the date: Sept 27-29.

New this year: Registration includes lunch on both Saturday and Sunday! And we are adding an additional rotation on Friday afternoon!

Our featured demonstrators for 2024 will include Jean Fran├žois Escoulen, Dale Larson, Rudy Lopez, Jacques Vesery, and Kimberly Winkle. Plus we’ll have 9 great regional demonstrators

We are also again offering workshops with a couple of our demonstrators before or after the symposium. Check our Workshops page for more info.

About the Symposium

Participants choose from 45 rotations given by some of the best woodturners in the world. The presentations have something for everyone, from the beginner to the professional.

We have a large vendor exhibit and a hands on woodturning program area. An Instant Gallery is open to the public and all attendees are encouraged to bring and display their work.

Saturday and Sunday lunch is included in your full registration. During lunch on Saturday, there will be a critique of selected items from the Instant Gallery. On Sunday, lunch will feature our closing ceremony, auctions, door prizes, and our now World Famous Longest Shaving Contest! There will be opportunities to purchase (or win!) fine art, tools, and more.

Check-in will open Friday at 11 am, with the first demonstration starting at 12:45 (exact times are subject to change). On Friday evening we will host a meet-and-greet ice cream social and vendor showcase.

Early registration opens in February and will be discounted, so don’t wait!

The symposium is open to anyone with an interest in woodturning and is the best value available.
