Benefits of Membership

Club membership provides you with many opportunities as a woodturner including meeting and networking with like minded woodturners, as well as furthering your knowledge and skill as a woodturner. Club members enjoy sharing their knowledge, skill and passion for this craft with others.

From time to time the club also participates in a number of exhibitions and events designed to expose others to the craft of woodturning. You are welcome our next monthly as our guest, to see a sample demonstration and learn more about us at Northern Woodturners.

A few key benefits of membership:

  • Monthly Meetings - 9:00 AM on the 3rd Saturday of each month in the club rooms. Meetings provide an opportunity to network with other turners and include live demonstrations focused on specific skills, techniques and projects.

  • Members receive a monthly newsletter by email, as well as email alerts regarding demonstrations, tools, equipment, wood and related announcements.

  • 1 on 1 mentoring and instruction opportunities.

  • In person demonstrations from well recognised woodturners and other specialists in wood and turning related activities.
