The next AWGB International Woodturning Seminar will be held between 5th and 7th October 2018.

We've found a brand new venue – Yarnfield Park, just outside Stone in Staffordshire. Close to the M6 Yarnfield is an ideal location. The main building which contains the restaurant, bar and meetings rooms for the presentations is around 100 yards from a very large car park and 100 yards in the other direction to the accommodation which is at a very high standard.

Take a look at their website - you can't fail to be impressed.

We will start with lunch on the 5th and finish with lunch on the 7th.
We are still planning the demonstrator line up but we are hoping to have two from the USA, three from Ireland, three from mainland Europe and two from Britain.

There will be masterclasses running alongside the presentations where attendees can learn specific techniques. The masterclasses will be booked on a first come first served basis but will be free of charge.

Friday night will be a free evening for attendees to chat in the comfortable bar area. On Saturday evening we will have an informal dinner followed by presentations and the auction which raises funds for our development fund.

There will be a great selection of traders, some new faces and of course, the ever popular Instant Gallery from which we’ll be choosing 50 or 60 pieces for our travelling exhibition.

Costs have yet to be finalised but we are expecting the full weekend, including accommodation and meals to cost around £425 inclusive of VAT.

Make this a date on your diary and start saving now – you won’t regret it!
