Topsy Turvy! Women in Turning Project for AAW’s 2018 EOG Auction

Next year’s AAW Educational Opportunity Grant Project is titled Topsy Turvy! The project for the 2018 EOG Auction gives our participants the opportunity to explore an easy exercise on the lathe to create a spin top. Participants are encouraged to submit a spin top for Topsy Turvy! There is a limit of one donation per person. The spin tops must be done on the lathe. Spin tops are different from a Trompo or Whipping Top-these are tops, which are spun by winding a length of string around the body, and launching it so that it lands and spins. Trompos or Whipping Tops are NOT to be submitted. Tops can be carved, wood burned or colored  but should be able to spin. We are including pictures of the spinning tops we will accept, and an image of a Whipping Top that we will NOT accept. The tops will be presented grouped together in a custom-designed display, and because of this there is a size restriction: tops can be no larger than 3.5” tall x 2.5” wide x 2.5” deep. To have time for professional photos and to take advantage of early publicity for promotion to potential buyers, your contribution must be delivered by January 31, 2018. Work should be shipped to: Tania Radda, 1519 W Augusta Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85021. Put your thinking caps on and let’s make this another fun and successful project! Any questions about the project can be sent to Tania Radda, email: radda@cox.net
