Classes and workshops


The club periodically offers an introductory, 5 day woodturning class that is taught by an experienced club member. The class covers the basics of woodturning focusing on using traditional steel tools. Topics include basic shop and woodturning safety as well as sharpening of tools, proper tool use and some design considerations. At the end of the class participants will be able to turn face grain forms such as bowls, and long grain forms such as spindles and furniture parts. Class size is typically limited to 4 students which provides a great experience to interact with instructors on a one-on-one basis.

Next workshop will be conducted September 16th through the 20th, 9AM to 5PM each day. Tuition is $250 due at registration. Only current WMW members can enroll. Space is limited. To register for the workshop contact Bruce Dannenhauer, For more information on the class please download the file below or go to this link.


In addition to the monthly demonstrations the club periodically arranges for internationally recognized experts in the field of woodturning to offer a workshop that is offered to club members for an additional fee. Typically class sizes are small to provide a more one-on-one experience than would be found at many woodturning schools.

Workshops attendance is offered first to members and if the class does not fill is then opened to the public.

Workshop fees: variable dependent on the number of seats available.
