Returning in September, 2023

2022 Cancelation

Sadly, we must cancel our symposium for 2022.

There are still too many uncertainties for us to ensure we can bring you the quality program we know you expect. We have not given up, just put things on hold a bit longer. We are still planning to return in September 2023.

In 2020, we had scheduled a symposium for the weekend of Sept 18-20. That would have been our 22nd year for the symposium. We had to cancel that year due to COVID-19. Demonstrators scheduled for that year included Mike Jackofsky, Graeme Priddle & Melissa Engler, Raleigh Lockhart, Pat Scott, Michael Alguire, Kirk DeHeer, and more!

About the Symposium

Participants choose from 40 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 evening features a banquet and live and silent auctions. There are many opportunities to purchase fine art, tools, and more.

Checkin and the vendor area open Friday afternoon, with the first demonstrations at 3:30, and a meet-and-greet with demonstrators that evening. Our last demonstration ends around 3:30 on Sunday, and we close out with a drawing for items that have been donated by our vendors.

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