American Association of Woodturners

Our national woodturning organization, the AAW,  is a great resource.  We recommend membership for all of our students.  Membership provides you with a beautiful journal and access to great videos and articles on the association's website. (also qualifies you for a $20 discount when you take one of our all day workshops)

Local Woodturning Clubs

We are fortunate in Baltimore to be close to a number of local clubs associated with the AAW.  These clubs welcome new and experienced turners to their monthly meetings.  Joining a club is a great way to improve your skills, learn about tools and equipment purchases, meet great people and gain inspiration for your woodturning projects  (also qualifies you for a $20 discount when you take one of our all day workshops)
