Whether you are a woodturner or not, there are plenty of things to do aside from watching shavings fly. There's a list of classes that family members can attend such as: making a rag doll, fused glass, beaded jewelry, card making, book talk and paint pouring (and more).
The content of the classes varies but all have limited, small personal class sizes. Some require a fee due to materials, which is requested to be paid in cash. Classes are available Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning with lots of opportunities to make friends and learn something new. Many of the SWAT Family Program members threaten their woodturning partner they are coming without them next year they've had so much fun!
There is an area where you can work on
own crafting (knitting, stitching, etc.). An informal gathering on
Saturday morning gives you the opportunity to meet some of the
instructors and purchase items made by the instructors and crafters. A
Book Club Discussion is held on Friday afternoon and another on Sunday
morning this year.
Every member of the family is welcome at SWAT. Younger family members can even learn to turn a pen from seasoned woodturners.
