Apply to be a Demonstrator at the 2024 AAW International Woodturning Symposium in Oregon

Demonstrating at the AAW International Woodturning Symposium is one of the best ways to get your name out there as a prominent woodturner. It also gives you the opportunity to share your expertise with hundreds of attendees in-person and thousands watching online. Please review the application completely before filling it out. You may submit up to three demonstration topic proposals. Be sure to fill out each proposal completely--incomplete applications will not be considered. 

The deadline for filling out this application is 11:59 PM ET on August 1, 2023. You may edit your application using the "edit" link in the confirmation email until the deadline. 

If you have questions about the application process or demonstrating, please contact KC Kendell at [email protected]. If you are having problems with the form, please email Tib Shaw at [email protected]

The 2024 Symposium takes place May 23-26 in Portland, OR.
