OVERVIEW
The first-ever Fresh Cut Woodturning Symposium is dedicated to exploring the dynamic and rich world of greenwood. Whether on the lathe or on the workbench, the world of greenwood is filled with possibilities and not fully understood by many woodworkers. The rugged and spectacular fall season on Minnesota's North Shore provides a perfect backdrop for this hands on and engaging multi-day event.  Over 20 demonstrations and speaker sessions plus multi-day coursework offer engaging possibilities for anyone hoping to expand their skills and open new doors into the world of woodworking.

Three national/international featured artisans are at the core of Fresh Cut's robust program offerings – in addition, ten regional woodworking instructors will be featured. Fresh Cut takes place on North House Folk School’s iconic northern campus. Three event partners are key collaborators: the famed American Association of Woodturners (AAW), legendary lathe builder Oneway Manufacturing, and the event's lead funder, the Minnesota State Arts Board.

Enrollment in Fresh Cut is limited to the first 100 participants to maximize hands-on engagement and face-to-face conversation. Participants in pre and post-event extended coursework receive a 50% discount on the Symposium.

DETAILS
The symposium includes multi-day coursework, demonstrations, speakers, mini-courses and community gatherings, all designed to encourage wide-ranging discussion of the craft of woodturning and to celebrate and relish the intimate connection to the material green wood turning fosters. Register for the symposium here. Featured instructors include: Robin Wood, Michael Hosaluk and Michael Cullen. See coursework below.
