Our Chapter

The Wilmington Area Woodturners Association (WAWA) was founded in 2004, a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners (AAW), to support and build a community of new and experienced woodturners through teaching, training, and demonstrations.

Our Mission

Our chapter's mission is twofold. First and foremost, the mission of WAWA is to provide a forum by which its members can enhance their knowledge of woodturning by sharing experiences and techniques with each other and through continuing education. Secondly, WAWA strives to broaden awareness and knowledge about the craft of woodturning with those in the Wilmington area communities. In furtherance of these two missions, WAWA seeks to gain community recognition and support by participating in local events, education programs, training classes, and exhibits.
