From 19-25 March, the AAW, through its Turners Without Borders (TWB) programme, is partnering the International Wood Culture Society (IWCS) to present a group of international woodturners to the Chinese public.

Until now only individual international turners have demonstrated in China, so this will be the first time for such an event to be held there. It is part of World Wood Day organised by IWCS to celebrate wood culture in many forms.

The IWCS website has more information on this event. In China everything is done in spectacular fashion and the venue will be a big surprise to many visitors. It is the Fujian Xianyou China Classical Art Expo City, and takes woodturning venues to a different level.

The turners who will be demonstrating are Bonnie Klein (USA), Jacques Vesery (USA), Andrew Chen (USA), Theo Haralampou (Australia), Terry Martin (Australia) and Adam Doran (Ireland).
