The Thames Valley Woodturners Guild is a group of woodturners over 80 strong situated in and around London Ontario. Our regular meetings provide the woodturner with a great network of other woodturners in the London area. We are a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners (AAW)
We have turning demonstrations from guild members and occasionally from other masters in the field. Our demonstrations are instructional and interactive with the audience.

Drop-in Nights

TVWG Drop-In night TBD for 2016
All are welcome from the public and from the membership! Bring a piece of wood you want to turn for some instruction by mentors AND bring your tools to sharpen. Ask any questions you like or feel free to watch others! This is a free service from the executive to members as part of your membership!
