The Southern Piedmont Woodturners Association leases a large space here at ClearWater Artist Studios (Studio 122), and has about 65 local members. See their Artist Page on this site for images; and/or their own website for more info. The club meets every 3rd Tuesday evening and non-members are welcome to attend the first time for free.
Each Month's Featured Demonstrator description will be uploaded to this space, as soon as received from the SPW Club's scheduler for that month. Sometimes there will be a workshop with multiple lathes in use. Check back if details for a particular date aren't yet loaded!
Note-- Official meet time starts at 6:30; but social hour starts at 5:30 so come early!
The Southern Piedmont Woodturners meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm until 9:00 pm. We meet at our studio (#122) at Clearwater Artist Studios, 223 Crowell Drive NW, Concord, NC 28025. Members begin to arrive around 5:30 pm and the program is usually finished by 9:00 pm.
We usually have an "Instant Gallery" of members’ items they bring to demonstrate how previous demonstrators have influenced their work. We also have a raffle of items to raise funds for the club.
In addition to Clearwater Artist Studios, the SPW is associated with the Cabarrus County Arts Council (CCAC), the American Association of Woodturners (AAW), and the North Carolina Woodturners Association (NCWA).
