Women's Turning Event   
Charlotte North Carolina

We are tentatively working on scheduling two women's turning events in Charlotte.  One in the Spring and again in the fall around September.

This event is sponsored by the:  Southern Piedmont Woodturners 
223 Crowell Dr. NQ, Concord North Carolina

This event is for women only and is designed to introduce women to woodturning.  Women are given the opportunity to learn turning techniques and to explore methods of turning in a friendly and supportive environment.  This is an opportunity to meet other women who are interested in woodturning and to be a part of the growing community of women in this field.

if you are interested in attending please contact Cindy Boehrns at 402-730-5737 or email her at

April  1- 5
Florida School of Woodwork
1609 N. Franklin Street, Tampa Florida

One week of intense study making natural edge platters and bowls with surface enhancements.  We will explore color, carving, texturing, painting and applying metal finishes.  This class will take you from the raw wood to a finished art piece.  You will come away with a thorough knowledge of the process of turning wood with an uneven edge and with the ability to analyze the natural elements of the wood and how to enhance its character through the use of texture, carving, and color.   We will work to understand basic design principles such as balance and proportion.  We will work with slabs and caps cuts in burl woods.

May 17, 18, 19
Utah Symposium       
Attending but not a demonstrator

August 11-16
Arrowmont Workshop
Week-long class in platters /bowls with surface texturing and embellishments.  We will be creating platters from burl maple slaps and caps with an emphasis on turning techniques and will be using texturing, carving, and color applications to enhance the platters and bowls.   We will explore and experiment with making unique textures and patterns and will learn the variety of painting techniques to create a metal like surface finish.  The skills from this class can be used on almost any turning project to highlight your turnings.   Students should have an intermediate knowledge of turning and be able to use standard turning tools.
