Our regular meetings provide the woodturner with a great network of other
woodturners in the London area. We are a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners (AAW)
Demonstrations: We have turning demonstrations from guild members and occasionally from other masters
in the field. Our demonstrations are instructional and interactive with the audience.
TVWG Drop-In night TBD for 2016
All are welcome from the public and from the membership! Bring a piece of wood you want to turn for some instruction by mentors AND bring your tools to sharpen. Ask any questions you like or feel free to watch others!
This is a free service from the executive to members as part of your membership!
Upcoming Guild Demonstrations
We are endeavoring to fill in the demonstration schedule for the rest of the 2015/2016 calendar years.
