A National Woodturning Symposium
for the Visually or Physically Disabled
***Rescheduled for 2016***
Due to the continuing poor economy, we have been unable to raise enough funds to host "Your Time To Turn" for 2015. We must therefore reschedule it until 2016. If you know of an individual or corporation that would like to donate to this worthy cause, please contact Steve Russell, President of the LSWA using the contact form at the bottom of this page.
Early Fall 2016
Lone Star Convention & Expo Center
Blue Bonnet Ballroom 1, 2 and 3
9055 F.M. 1484 Conroe, Texas 77303
Online registration and additional information will be available in 2016!
Your Time To Turn will be the first woodturning symposium of its kind that will be specifically designed to teach woodturning techniques to disabled military veterans, the blind, as well as those with physical impairments including paraplegics, quadriplegics, those with an inability to stand for long periods, or those who have a lost an arm or hand, or one or both of their legs.
Instead of a traditional woodturning symposium where you watch a demonstrator, Your Time To Turn will be a hands-on symposium, where qualified instructors will be present to help guide attendees through the skill building exercises. Don't miss this opportunity to attend this very special symposium!
You Can Help: If you know of a disabled military veteran, blind woodturner, or another woodturner with physical disabilities, or a disabled person who would like to learn woodturning, please email us using the link below.
If you know of any companies who might want to help support this unique learning experience for the disabled with tax deductible financial donations, or with donations of tools or equipment, please email Steve Russell, Symposium Coordinator at the link below. Thanks for helping me to assist disabled military veterans and other people with visual and physical disabilities to achieve their goal of learning the art and craft of woodturning.
