Woodturning Demonstration

To continuously promote and popularize the woodturning craft, we will as usual invite woodturning artists to introduce and demonstrate woodturning skills by using the advanced electric lathe and the traditional human-powered lathe. There are some mini-lathes for children to experience the fun of woodturning.

The Woodturning Demonstration isn’t merely a platform for woodturning artists to share and exchange their skills, but a great opportunity for the public to learn more about the history and knowledge of turning. Aside from the demonstration performed by the masters, audience is also encouraged to experience the woodturning craft under the guidance of the demonstrators.
