We are the Woodturners Association of Manitoba. We meet the second Thursday (usually) of each month from September through June. We meet at the Howden Community Centre 1079 Red River Dr, Ritchot, MB. (map here)

We are a bunch of woodturning enthusiasts who meet to share ideas, challenge each other, swap wood and tools, and generally behave like kids in a candy store. Nothing excites us more than finding a new technique, tool, or chunk of exotic lumber.

We started our group in the spring of 2007. We have a healthy core of members who show up to meetings and engage in demonstrations and conversation. Come join us for woodturning and everything that goes with it.

Generally, the meeting starts at 6:30pm with an Early Bird Special, which is usually a fundamentals topic. At 7pm, we deal with whatever club business that needs to be dealt with, followed by a demonstration of a turning topic of some kind. We end each meeting with an Instant Gallery of work by our members.

Our annual membership fee is $50.

For information on joining our club, please email Gerald:
Better yet, fill out an application form and come to one of our regular meetings (click on Season Schedule at left and map link above) to join.

Featured Artist

Donna Stewart

Donna's love of working with wood began at the age of 10 when the barn on her family farm burned down. That summer her father built a new one and she helped. Hammering nails, the smell of the wood, the whole experience stayed with her. She began woodturning after retirement.

WAM is proud to honour Donna as our featured artist. She is a long time member and always brings creative and interesting work to show us.
