Located in Anchorage, Alaska, the Alaska Woodturners Association (AWA) is the largest organization devoted to woodturning in the state. Since our inception in 2003, we have met to share knowledge of various woodturning techniques and we have grown from just 8 founding members, to over 130 members. We have members with a range of skill levels from the true novice to master turners. Our members are from all over the state of Alaska including Juneau, Nikiski, Homer, Cooper Landing, Palmer, Wasilla, Barrow, Healy, North Pole, Kodiak, Fairbanks, and Anchorage. We have worked to create a culture of inclusion for all of our turners and our meetings, demonstrations, and gatherings have something of interest to everyone. If you’re looking around and would like to come in from out of town, our members are open to sharing their space with you and we always have a spare room to accommodate the “out of town” guests who would like to attend particular events.
