Immerse Yourself...Virginia Woodturning Symposium 2018


Virginia Woodturning Symposium 2018

November 3 & 4, 2018

Expoland - Fishersville, VA

Welcome to the 2018 Virginia Woodturning Symposium!

We know you will find this year’s Symposium to be an exciting continuation of our last Symposium.  We have increased the number of rotations to 41 spread across 7 demonstration stations to give you a broad selection of international, national, and regionally known demonstrators.

Plan on spending some time in the expanded Skills/Future Turners section.  Our volunteers and Symposium demonstrators will be happy to assist you with that technique that will hopefully improve your woodturning experience.  Our volunteers and demonstrators will be there to give you one-on-one assistance on techniques and methods.

Make sure you visit the Vendors located in both halls.  Many have special prices just for the Symposium and you can pick up that perfect tool and/or supplies you have been wanting and not have to pay shipping! A great savings that will help you get more for your money.

No Symposium would be complete without a word of thanks to the 10 Virginia woodturning clubs and their volunteer members that form the Symposium Board.  Without their participation, this Symposium would not be possible.  While the clubs provided the equipment used by the demonstrators, their membership had a hand in making everything work.  

But most of all, many thanks to you for attending.  Without your participation, there would be no Virginia Symposium.  Please take a moment to fill out our survey form before leaving and let know your thoughts.  By taking a few minutes to share your suggestions for improvements will help us evaluate the demonstrations and programs, thereby ensuring continued improvements for future Symposiums.

When you leave the Symposium, we hope you will have expanded your horizons and added to your skill knowledge.  Please share your new knowledge with your fellow turners – volunteer to demonstrate in your club, become a mentor, participate in your club’s community outreach programs, and contribute to your club’s newsletter.

Again, many thanks for attending and hope you enjoy!
