Video: The Turn by IWCS

For 2015 World Wood Day, the International Wood Culture Society (IWCS) invited seven woodturners from USA, Turkey, and Morocco, to demonstrate in Turkey. These woodturners demonstrated a variety of techniques from turning nonsymmetrical shapes to turning by foot. Of all the woodturning pieces, the small and brightly-colored spinning tops remained the all-time favorites among kids. (TRT: 7:06)


Thank you to IWCS for sharing this wonderful video production.


In March, six AAW members were invited to participate in the World Wood Day 2015 celebrations in Eskişehir and Istanbul, Turkey.  Kathleen Duncan, Michael Gibson, Derek Weidman, and Andy Chen, demonstrated woodturning and Cynthia Gibson demonstrated pyrography. Jacques Vesery functioned in the capacity of a wood carver/sculptor and was the organizer of a collaborative project that involved 23 wood artists from 17 countries. Learn more.
