Expressions in Wood Expo

6th Annual Expressions in Wood Expo
Formerly Wisconsin Woodturners Expo
Eau Claire, Wisconsin, October 25th and 26th, 2014

The 6th Annual Expressions in Wood Expo will be at the Plaza Hotel & Suites, 1202 W. Clairemont Ave., Eau Claire, Wisconsin, on Saturday and Sunday, October 25th and 26th, 2014. This event is presented jointly by Chippewa Valley Woodturners Guild and West Wisconsin Woodcarvers Guild.

Hours will be 8 AM – 6 PM on Saturday and 8 AM – 5 PM on Sunday. You will enjoy lathe woodturning demonstrations, exhibitors, vendors and an Instant Art Gallery. A Silent Auction will be held for supporting our youth outreach program.

We will also hold our “Learn-to-Turn” woodturning workshops for youths and beginning woodturners which was such an overwhelming success last year. There will also be hands-on demonstrations of woodcarving by the West Wisconsin Woodcarvers Guild. This will be a great opportunity to learn the basics of woodturning and woodcarving.

Having been recently at the art show at Springfest in Chippewa Falls in April, many of the same artisans will be presenting at this event. This will be a great opportunity to buy your Christmas gifts early.

The professional demonstrators this year will be Allen Jensen of Loveland, CO and Tim Heil of Gem Lake, MN. Also, this year we will have Bob Boettcher from Minnesota Woodturners; Barry Grill and Mark Palma from the Chippewa Valley Woodturners. Wayne Dubberke from West Wisconsin Woodcarvers Guild will also demonstrate woodcarving. Many vendors will be performing woodturning and woodcarving tasks in their booths.

General admission is $5.00 per day to the vendor, exhibitor and instant gallery areas and $50.00 for one day of demonstrations or $110.00 for both days of demonstrations, which includes the exhibitor, vendor and instant gallery area. The two-day admission includes a full set of DVDs ($30 value) commemorating the proceedings.

Chippewa Valley Woodturners Guild is an active member of the American Association of Woodturners based in St. Paul, MN with over 14,500 members throughout the United States and several countries around the world.
