Founded in 2013, the Foothill Woodturners is a group of creative men and women in the Sierra Nevada foothills of Northern California interested in improving their skills, learning new techniques, developing artistically, and meeting new friends. Attendees, many of whom are members of the American Association of Woodturners (AAW), live in Auburn, Colfax, Grass Valley, Lincoln, Sacramento, and surrounding areas. Whether you are a beginner or more advanced, we welcome your participation.

Learn to turn:

  • Bowls
  • Platters
  • Hollow forms
  • Vases
  • Lidded boxes
  • Segmented forms
  • Embellishments
  • “Beads of Courage”
  • and much more!
Meetings are held the third Wednesday each month at 10am. The meeting location varies and often rotates among member shops or patios. Enjoy skill enhancing presentations, quality mentors for all forms of turning, quarterly challenges, engaging discussions, the chance to share your own creations, fresh inspiration, and lots of camaraderie.

Guests are always welcome!
