WIT Presents

WIT Presents is a series of webinars featuring women artists. Through WIT Presents, we endeavor to inspire creativity and create community among women via conversations and interactive studio tours. WIT Presents was created by the AAW WIT Committee during the COVID-19 pandemic as a means to keep women woodturners connected with one another. The format consists of the artist’s presentation of her work, a Q&A session, and a tour of the artist's shop.


New! The WIT After Party will provide an opportunity to see and talk with other attendees after the event.
