The past years have shown us how important the EXCHANGE has become to a community of women turners in stimulating creativity, fostering collaboration, and facilitating self-confidence.
After the success of the first Virtual WIT EXCHANGE, the WIT Committee has committed to continue the program and expand it to include as many women as possible this year. We encourage all prior participants to reach out to their circle of artist friends (in any media) to consider participating in the 2021 Virtual EXCHANGE .
The WIT committee believes that introducing artists from other media into this EXCHANGE will open new avenues for creativity. At the same time, the art of woodturning will be introduced to an entirely different group of women. The Virtual EXCHANGE creates an environment which will expand awareness of woodturning beyond our current community. This exposure to different media will also foster infinite creative opportunities.
The WIT EXCHANGE welcomes women of all skill level. It is a collaborative project that will enhance skills, friendships, and self-confidence. It’s designed to be hard work, but lots of FUN!
Here is how it works:
The goal of this EXCHANGE is to push you to the next level in your creative process. Learn or share new techniques. Network with an expanded community of women artists.
- The first meeting is an orientation - meeting all the participants, choose words and find out who your teammates will be for this EXCHANGE.
- All projects officially start after the orientation meeting.
- Teams meet for creative brainstorming, agree on concept, then each team creates a project (focusing on the process and documenting along the way.)
