AWGB International Woodturning Seminar 2013
Between August 9th & 11th Loughborough University is once again the venue for the AWGB biennial International Woodturning Seminar. Our 14th International Seminar, it promises to yet again to better previous seminars with a glittering array of World-class UK and International presenters.
The UK turners will be known to many as the cream of the UK demonstrators. With presentations from Stuart Mortimer, Mark Baker from Woodturning Magazine, Simon Hope, Phil Irons and Jason Breach there will be something for every taste catered for.
The International presenters offer the opportunity to see turners from around the world demonstrating their particular skills and techniques. From the USA we have segmented turner Curt Theobold, and hollow form specialist John Jordan, from France we have Pascal Oudet, from Switzerland we have Jerome Blanc, and from Ireland Seamus Cassidy.
Along with the main presenters there will be three one-slot presentations from Andy Coates, Richard Findley and Mark Sanger.
The seminar offers an unparalleled opportunity to see World-Class turners passing on their knowledge at close quarters, and is the highlight of the UK woodturning calendar.
As usual we will have a well supported Traders Area where you can stock up on all you consumables, tools, wood and equipment. There will be an Instant Gallery of work from delegates, often exceeding three hundred pieces of the best work you can see in one place in the UK at any one time. There will be a raffle offering some fantastic prizes, the Saturday banquet with a live auction of woodturning , and our by now world renown Live Friday night Internet Auction of work by World-class turners, which is the source of all our member development funds.
Combined with superb food, great accommodation, and the relaxed and friendly atmosphere it offers the best weekend option for woodturners anywhere.
There are options for half days, full days, and full weekend attendance. The Instant Gallery and Traders Hall can be visited by anybody free of charge throughout Saturday and Sunday morning.
