SAW Open Days


Recent Open Day
Colwin Way demonstrating

SAW's Open Days provide the means for the Association to advance towards many of its objectives.

  • By holding both internal and Open competitions, woodturning of the highest standard can be seen and enjoyed by other turners and the general public, as well as stimulating the creative ideas of those who enter.
  • Carefully selected trade stands give the opportunity for turners to buy tools, material and equipment relevant to the art/craft.
  • Demonstrations, by both club and professional turners, provide entertainment, instruction and ideas, and the chance for club members to practice their demonstrating skills to a wider audience.


SAW Open Day 2020 was cancelled. Hope to see you in October 2021
