Upcoming Events


Demo in progress

A demonstration is a prime part of every meeting. These monthly demos most often showcase the skills of one of our own members, but on some occasions we invite nationally-known turners to spice things up a bit.

November 16—Make a Lidded box with Steve Swartz

December 21—Christmas Party


We will hold four turning challenges in 2017. Each challenge will coincide with a monthly meeting. Entries will be (usually) judged by lottery, and winners will receive a gift certificate and be immortalized in the Richmond Woodturners newsletter!

Mixed Media Challenge

December 2017—Turn a mixed media piece. It must be primarily wood but include other media (e.g., polymer clay, metal, glass).

Special Events

Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden Dominion GardenFest of Lights

November 24, 2017–January 8, 2018—Exhibition of Richmond Woodturners in the library, possibly with demonstration opportunities. Georgia Wood is organizing.
