WIT eXchange

September 5-7, 2019

Arrowmont Arts and Crafts School

Gatlinburg, TN



About the WIT eXchange

The eXchange will take place September 5th through 7th - with arrival on September 4th and departure on September 8th.


Join in the fun of a three-day immersion into the creative process. Each day will be a new opportunity to work and get to know others in small collaborative teams of three. The first two days, group members will be assigned, so there will be a range of skill levels from newbie to professionals on each team. On the third day, you will be able to select those you want to work with.


Each day, your team will be working in a fun-filled and fast-paced exploration of designing and creating a piece based on randomly generated word pairs by using a variety of techniques including, but not limited to woodturning, pyrography, carving, and painting. We will all be sharing and learning from each other! If there is a certain tool or technique you want to use, but are not sure how to go about it, just ask. Someone will be able to help you.


As your day progresses, you will be asked to photograph the process your team goes though. Each evening we will come together and share your process with the whole group using a selected group of your images. In this way, we will be able to learn from everyone's experience. Groups do not necessarily need to complete the project by day's end, but we do hope to get those creative juices flowing and have fun! All levels of experience are welcome-including newbies.


  • AAW Members: Until June 1st, the early-bird price is $300 for AAW members, which includes event registration and and all meals from Wednesday (9/4) dinner to Sunday (9/8) breakfast.
