About AAW Symposia

The annual AAW International Symposium is the highlight of the woodturning year, meeting in different locations throughout the United States. It has become the most attended woodturning event worldwide.

 

Each symposium features three and a half days of woodturning demonstrations, panel discussions, and meetings, led by several talented experts:

  • Internationally known woodturners
  • Veteran woodturning instructors
  • Expert local talent

Multiple rotations are held simultaneously so attendees have many different types and styles of woodturning demonstrations available. Many of the demonstrations are held multiple times so the attendee has the opportunity to attend sessions they may have missed.

 

Each symposium has had a unique flavor, but most of them have the following features:

  • Rotation schedule of classroom-type demonstrations and panel discussions, hosted by the world's best woodturning professionals.
  • Instant Gallery like no other on earth, with up to three pieces submitted by each attendee.
  • Inspiring international exhibitions of innovative sculptural and functional works in wood.
  • An awards dinner.
  • Special Interest Night where like-minded turners get together to share ideas.
  • Auctions of fine woodturnings.
  • Largest woodturning tradeshow anywhere, including tool and lathe manufacturers, vendors of wood and other materials, and suppliers related to woodturning.
