Arizona Woodturners Association

The Arizona Woodturners Association (AWA) in Phoenix, Arizona is a proud chapter of the American Association of Woodturners (AAW).  We are dedicated to training, preserving and inspiring the art of woodturning.  We are excited about the revival interest in woodturning.  People’s imaginations have shown the world that turning is a true and pure form of art.  This organization is busy!  All ages both men and women are actively having fun with woodturning!
