Get Turning For 2017

Exciting News

We are Moving To Kingston City Hall in Moorabbin

Thanks to Whitehorse Council and the staff of the Waratah Room for hosting and sponsoring the Exhibition for well over 10 years. But the exhibition is GROWING and NEW AND EXCITING ADDITIONS are being planned in response to demand from exhibitors and visitors alike. We are moving to Kingston City Hall, which offers more space to display the exhibits and will allow us to introduce live demonstrations and exhibits. Located on the corner of the Nepean Highway and South Road, Moorabbin, we look forward to seeing you there.

Why should you participate and exhibit your art work?

The Australian Woodturning Exhibition is a competition for all levels of turners from students (under 18s), novice, intermediate to master turners. It provides every turner the opportunity to raise their level of skill and produce pieces of art that meet the criteria of their peer turners who use a strict criteria in which to judge the pieces with a view to finding the “best of” in their category.

Getting selected for judging gives a turner a good idea that they have reached a high enough skill level in terms of design, skill, level of difficulty and finish in their section.  Winning a prize is a both a bonus and recognition that they are the best and are ready to aspire to the next level on their way to being a master turner.

Many people say they are not good enough to enter.  Our answer to this is you don’t really know how good you are until you enter.  Even if you are not chosen for judging, you will get the benefit of expert advice on how to raise the bar for next year.

Come on!! Have a go and get turning!!
