(1) The mentorship program is aimed specifically at our newer and less experienced members. This
program includes a specific 4 hour block of basic safety and woodturning instruction. Once this block of
instruction is completed, a specific member will be assigned to act as a mentor. The mentor is meant to
be an advisor that the new member can call upon to assist with woodturning issues and answer any
questions that arise. Any member or prospective member needing a mentor should contact Butch
Haislip, Membership Chairperson, at 910-795- 6496 to have one assigned.
(2) Monthly Woodturning Clinics are scheduled for those members who have a common interest in
specific topics that they want to have addressed. These clinics are hands on and accommodate small
groups. Attendance is limited. These clinics are taught by a member of the Club and usually at the
member's shop or studio. Clinic times, subjects to be taught, sign-up instructions, and exact locations
can be found on the website or are announced at regular WAWA meetings each month.
(3) Project specific Hands-on Sessions. One-on- one hands-on instruction for projects is available from
experienced woodturners. The members named below have volunteered to instruct those who feel they
need help on the specific projects listed by their names. Arrangements should be coordinated directly
with the respective instructor. Contact information is available on the WAWA Master List that is
distributed to all members..
