Public Demonstration Schedule 2020

These opportunities allow us to show the public the fun of woodturning and the camaraderie among the members. Demos are friendly and informal. The club gets good publicity and more than a few people have joined after meeting a friendly turner.

Our public demonstrations normally include:

  • Virginia Beach Spring Craft Market (March)

  • CASA Pinwheel Palooza demonstration (April)

  • Yorktown Art at the River (May)

  • Maker Fest Portsmouth (August)

  • Newport News Fall Festival (October)

  • Suffolk Driver Days (October)

  • Chesapeake Waterways Festival (October)

  • Other events as scheduled

Feel free to bring articles to sell.

Due to COVID 19 health concerns, most public demonstrations have been cancelled. Our staff is in contact with each event coordinator and are planning to participate in 2021.


Club Picnic

Each Summer, we've been lucky to be invited to hold our annual picnic at Myron and Sue's home.

Due to COVID 19 health concerns, our 2021 picnic has been cancelled.

Club Christmas Party

Every December, we gather at the local Woodcraft store, to celebrate the holidays with a dinner.

As of Oct 1st the Christmas party is still being planned...all dependent on Covid restrictions.

Member Show

Every year, we hold a member's show in a local gallery. This enables each member an opportunity to show their best pieces in a public forum.

Due to COVID 19 health concerns, our 2020 member show was cancelled.
