A Symposium Not to be Missed

Announcing the 2016 Virginia Woodturners Symposium

November 5th & 6th, 2016

EXPOland, Fishersville, Virginia.

 We know the Symposium is in the not too distant future, but we could not contain ourselves. Just wanted to give you a heads-up for this great turning event.  You’ve spoken and we listened.  We’ve changed our format to have more traditional demonstrations. For starters, we have Jimmy Clewes, Trent Bosch, Bob Rosand, Frank Penta, John Jordan, Lyle Jamieson, and Barry Gross signed up as demonstrators.

 We expanded our space and spread out our demonstration locations to cut down on noise.  Our basic skills section will include dedicated demonstrations and more hands-on opportunities.  And we’ve set aside more room for more vendors.

 Mark your calendars to reserve the dates of November 5th & 6th, 2016 to attend the Virginia Woodturners Symposium at EXPOland in Fishersville, Virginia. We will updating our website with 2016 information over the next few months, so check us out at http://www.virginiawoodturners.com

 Hope to see you there!
