2013 AAW Symposium ~ Tampa, FL

Things have been quiet on my blog the last two couple weeks as I have been getting ready for the 2013 AAW Symposium being held in Tampa, FL at the end of this month.  I will be demonstrating at the Symposium and all of my spare time lately has been devoted to preparing for this.

I’m really looking forward to the Symposium.  As well as a great line up of very talented demonstrators there is so much else to see and do.  The instant gallery, billed as the largest display of turned wood objects under one roof, is a sight to behold and I plan on spending a couple hours there.  There is also the juried exhibition, this years theme is “Currents”.  Not to forget the Vendor area where you can pick up that last tool that stands between you and greatness!  You can read more about the symposium at the AAW website  or download the Symposium Planning Guide.

My demonstration will be on casting and threading a pewter collar and finial for use in a hollow form.  I will be doing two rotations, one on Saturday and one on Sunday.  If you’re a reader of my blog feel free to say hi and introduce yourself.  It would be great to meet you and talk a bit about turning.

Hope to see you in Tampa!
