2017 Oregon Woodturning Symposium


The Oregon Association of Woodturners is proud to present the second Oregon Woodturning Symposium on March 17-19, 2017.  Join us as we bring in some of the best turners in the nation for extraordinary demonstrations that offer something for every level of woodturner, beginner to professional.  


Sharing their exceptional expertise, this year's demonstrators include: Al Stirt, Binh Pho, Christian Burchard, Dixie Biggs, Don Ward, Jon Magill, Michael Blankenship, Nick Cook, Stuart Batty and our special guest, Stuart Mortimer. Engage with these top professionals in a friendly, informal learning environment.     


One of the most exciting things about any woodturning symposium is a vendor gallery.  Here attendees will be able to see and discuss the latest woodturning products, equipment and tools.     

Instant Gallery

An Instant Gallery will be open to the Public and all attendees are encouraged to bring up to four pieces for exhibit.
This is a unique opportunity to share your skill, sell or just "show off" your work.

Beads of Courage Project

Hey Woodturners - What’s round, made of wood, has a lid and brings a child hope and encouragement?  
Read on to find the answer…..

You’ve probably heard of the Beads of Courage program.  It is the program designed to support and strengthen children and families coping with serious illness. Through the program, members tell their story using colorful beads as meaningful symbols of courage that they receive to honor and acknowledge each step of their treatment journey. 

The kids need a safe place to keep their beads and that’s where we can help.

The Oregon Woodturning Symposium (March 17-19, 2017) will be collecting boxes.   It’s not too early to start on your Beads of Courage lidded box.  If you would like to participate, get information and beads at:
