Mentorship Sessions


Mentorship Sessions are FREE online remote sessions, about an hour in length, dealing with essential knowledge and skills all woodturners need.  They are similar to IRDs but are not project oriented.  They are less regimented with plenty of room to digress and go where participants would like.  They are intended to be most valuable to those without many years of experience, but all turners may benefit.  Experienced turners are encouraged to join and participate.  We all learn from one another, and less experienced turners get more benefit from a diversity of viewpoints and experience.
