Tidewater Turners has two monthly meetings for your participation and enjoyment.

Regular monthly meetings are held at Woodcraft in Norfolk at 6:30 on the 4th Tuesday, and are open to the public. Typically, around 50 of our members attend. All meetings have a demonstrator - a club member or invited guest - who either turns a project or talks about an aspect of turning (tool use, finishes, glues, mounting techniques). It is an excellent learning experience. 

"Turners Talks" are our second type of meeting. They occur monthly on the 2nd Thursday 5 to 7 PM at Woodcraft and are open to the public. This is a very casual, informal, and fun meeting of 5 to 10 people. The meeting is devoted to a particular aspect of turning. Examples are subjects such as measuring devices, chucks and mounts, or deep hollowing. You do not need to participate, but may simply come in and listen to what others are doing. This is an excellent venue for new turners to learn techniques from our knowledgeable members. We are a non-profit organization and a member of the American Association of Woodturners. 

The purpose of our organization is to promote the advancement of woodturning skills for our members and other interested people through an open exchange of knowledge, ideas and information. We also strive to increase public awareness of woodturning as a popular craft and as an art form.

Several times a year the club will hold public demos, workshops, shows and wood gatherings. Visit the GALLERY to view current and past events.

 Twice a year we invite well known woodturners from around the country to give a demonstration of their talents. From past years, David Ellsworth, Cindy Drozda, and Richard Raffen to name a few, most recently, Warren Carpenter, Frank Penta,  Mike Sorge and Ron Thomas.


We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!
