2020 Pen Turner Events

2020 is an exciting time to be a pen turner!

  • Are you new to pen turning?
  • Are you an experienced pen turner?
  • Do you need some turning supplies?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions then 2020 is your year!

For those of you that have never been to a pen turning event and you’re unsure about whether or not it’s worth attending, let me assure you, it is! If you’re part of any of the Facebook groups then it’s a great place to meet those helpful folks in person. It’s a great place to take one-on-one classes from experts. It’s a great place to buy amazing blanks, dyes, resins, molds, etc.
