Some vendors and professional woodworkers are conducting remote virtual demonstrations, lectures, workshops, and podcasts to fill the gap in not being able to have live classes. On this page, we provide you with links to these events when we know about them. Obviously, if we don't know about these events, we can't tell you about them. So we rely on our members to let us know so we can let you know. If you know of one, send an email email@example.com.
Woodturners Worldwide Online Symposium is over for 2023. For those that attended, you can watch all the sessions for 30 days. Don't forget to download the handouts for any sessions that had them. [www.woodturnersworldwide.com]
