The Art of the Woodturner VI

Presented by Arnold Arboretum at Arnold Arboretum, Boston MA

Oct 07 - 09 2022
The Art of the Woodturner VI

Raw Edge Bowl, Rick Angus, from 2019 Woodturners' Show

See and experience New England woodturners’ virtuosity with wood, a lathe, and their imaginations.

For the sixth year, woodturners from throughout New England will exhibit their work at the Arboretum for a weekend of demonstrations and talks with the artisans. Using a lathe to form their pieces, woodturners create practical objects or “turn” to the purely aesthetic, resulting in a show that appeals to the eye and the touch.

* Demonstrations throughout both days (10am-4pm) on the Hunnewell lawn.
