Our 2023 Lineup: 

National Demonstrators

Regional Demonstrators

The Florida Woodturning Symposium Executive Committee has been working hard to create a new Florida Woodturning Symposium experience for you.

The 2023 Symposium will change in a number of ways:

  1. There is plenty of room.  Each of the demonstration rooms will allow us to accommodate social distancing and will comfortably allow more attendees.
  2. You will need to coordinate your own accommodations and meals.   There are two modern hotels on the RP Funding site.   We have developed special Symposium pricing at the host hotels, Hyatt Place and Springhill Suites.   Each of these hotels has breakfast included in the pricing.   We will have a lunch concession at the venue, but dinners will be on your own.   NOTE: Registration for the symposium is separate from the hotel rates.
  3. We will be having a cash bar for a meet and greet after the daily demonstrations.
  4. The Instant Gallery Critique will take place on Friday and the Auction/Raffle will take place on Saturday, both after the Meet and Greet and both will end by 7:15 pm
  5. The process for the silent and live auction have changed.  Please refer to our website pages on these items for more details.
  6. We have altered the schedule to give each of the demonstrators a full 90 minutes.  We also start first thing Friday morning and we’ll be combining both National and Regional demonstrators each day.  We’ve also added one extra rotation for the National and Regional demonstrators, reducing your chance of missing one of your favorites.
  7. FWS, along with the AAW, does not condone the practice of fractal burning.  Fractal burning is far too dangerous to life to support the practice in any way.  No demonstrations of fractal burning will be presented nor will fractal burning pieces be displayed in the instant gallery.

Please keep checking our Facebook page and this website to see the latest news.  We are very excited about the upcoming 2023 Florida Woodturning Symposium, please tell all of your friends about us.
