MSWG Mentor Program

Whether you're a beginner or a more experienced turner, whether you need an all-day session or 20 minutes' worth of pointers, our MSWG mentors are here to help you. 

 

You will be surprised what you can learn by just visiting a mentor's shop/work studio and looking around.

Example – One member was ready to upgrade his lathe and shop but before starting he visited with 8 of MSWG's mentors. You can only imagine what he learned and the mistakes he avoided.

If you would like advice on selecting the best mentor for your subject, please contact the club President or Vice President.
