I received the following email from the GA Association of Woodturners, announcing the symposium in September.
Turning Southern Style XVI
The Georgia Association of Woodturners (GAW), dedicated to providing education, information and organization to those interested in woodturning, will be presenting its annual symposium, “Turning Southern Style XVI”. This year’s event will again be held at the Unicoi State Park and Lodge near Helen, Georgia on September 17-19, 2010.
GAW sponsors this annual event which features some of the world’s leading woodturners and turning artisans.
This year’s featured turners include:
J. Paul Fennell, Alan Lacer, and Stephen Hatcher.
Also featured are:
Nick Cook, Johannes Michelsen, Peg Schmid, and Dave Barriger.
The instant gallery will return as a favorite and we invite each participant to display up to four pieces of his/her work for all to enjoy.
As always, the vendor area will be well stocked with tools, wood, and all other woodturning related supplies and equipment.
Saturday Night Dinner and Auction:
Prior to our auction, there will be a banquet dinner on Saturday evening. As always, all proceeds from the auction support continuing education in woodturning through our scholarship program. We encourage all who participate in the symposium to donate a piece to our Saturday Night Auction to benefit the scholarship fund.
