Woodturners Meetup - New, Experienced, and Just Interested
Please note, this event has expired.
A gathering of people interested in or curious about woodturning (making bowls, pens, vases, and other objects from wood).
Have you ever seen a beautiful wooden bowl or vase and thought to yourself “I wish I could make something like that!”? You can – but you have to make that first attempt! Woodturning is a skill you can learn in a day and spend a lifetime mastering.
Come join us as Red Mountain Makers celebrates the addition of our third wood lathe by hosting a gathering of woodturners of all experience levels. Bring examples of your work for an Instant Gallery – even problem pieces where you want feedback. JustView more
