Carolina Mountain Woodturners is a not-for-profit club with a mission to increase interest in woodturning as a craft and art form. Monthly live demonstrations are held at the Folk Art Center on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Asheville, North Carolina (see our schedule below). Additionally, members enroll in hands-on classes and open turning days at our fully equipped Turning Learning Center. While most members live within two hours of the Folk Art Center, others join the monthly demonstrations via live streaming from distances including Florida, Texas, California, Pennsylvania and more. Membership includes access to live demonstrations and live streaming via Zoom. Annual membership is only $35.00.

CMW boasts a membership of over 380 members. While large enough to include a wide range of woodturning skills and interests, the club remains a close community of woodturners and friends.
Please browse the links and pages below to learn about all that CMW offers. You will find offerings for individuals new to woodturning and opportunities to engage experienced woodturners too.

We invite you to visit us at our next monthly demonstration.
