Arizona Woodturners Association (AWA)

What is AWA and AAW?

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!

We encourage each of our members also to join the American Association of Woodturners. The information you can gather thru this national organization is second to none.  AAW membership includes:  2800 online projects, articles, videos and tips;  360 online videos searchable by topic;  12,000 images of member work for inspiration and ideas; 365 affiliated chapters to search (when you are traveling, stop in at a club); back issues of magazines and publications to browse; symposiums – just to mention a few benefits!  Check out AAW today!

Let the chips fly!

Why get an AWA membership?

We are asked if you need to live in AZ to be an AWA member?  No, you do not.  We have lots of goodies for members only.  Each monthly meeting is recorded and live for AWA members only.  At $40 for a new member – it is a great deal!  Everyone welcome!

Please browse and explore our website!  Stay safe.  Each month we have a demonstration with an Instant Gallery, President’s challenge and raffle.  These meetings are by invitation for AWA members.

In-person at the Pyle Center in Tempe, AZ and virtual meetings by Zoom for AWA Members.
