Hands On Workshops (HOW)


GCWA provides one of the best series of hands-on woodturning classes of any club in the nation.  These classes are provided as a benefit to club members only, and have a very nominal fee to simply cover costs.  Instructors can range from club members to regional and national turners the club brings has brought in for club demonstrations.

Open Shop Night

Open Shop Night is a great way to meet other turners, get mentoring on a skill you wish to improve, and socialize with your peers.  These are open to turners of all skill levels.  Stay for as little or as long as you wish.  Each location picks the night of the month and the start/end times for their meeting, so be sure to call the host for details if its your first time to join them.
