GAW services those in the metro-Atlanta area. We meet on the third Thursday of each month at 6:30 P.M.at the Georgia Tech Architectural Digital Fabrication Lab at 676 Marietta St., Atlanta GA. Map. Meetings are open to all.

See the Calendar page for details about our scheduled meetings and other events.

2018 American Craft Counsel Show

The 2018 ACC show is history. Eight GAW and South Metro members turned at the show. Rachel, the ACC Education Coordinator, who oversees the “Let’s Make” part of the show was extremely happy with comments that attendees had made about our demonstrations and made sure I knew we were invited to take part next year.

This year’s demonstrators were:

Scott Questad
Andy Bennett
George Daughtry
Hanley Lewis

Bill Lynch
Kim Muthersbough
Steve Pritchard
John Von Eshenbach

John von Eshenbach turning for one of our many visitors.

Wes Jones Exhibit

Wes has his work on display until April 28th at the Hudgens Center for Art and Learning in Duluth. Yesterday Linda and I had the pleasure of spending some time viewing his exhibit. Some of the work we had seen during show and tell at club meetings, but there was a lot we had not seen before.

We see our members’ work one or two pieces at a time at club meetings, but when we see a collection of one person’s work in a setting such as this, it takes on a new meaning. I would highly recommend stopping by the Hudgens Center. In my opinion it is worth the trip for any woodturner in the Atlanta area.

Wes will be delivering an artist’s talk on woodturning in the gallery on March 17th at 11 am.
