Symposium 2017

Les Petites Journées d’Aiguines

Our woodturning symposium, Les Petites Journées d’Aiguines, will be held on May 25 and 26. It is open for a maximum of 100 attendees. It’s the perfect opportunity to discover unknown but talented woodturners as well as getting close to some world class ones. For sure, if you add the breathtaking surroundings of the Verdon Canyon and the warm welcome of fellow woodturners, this is an event not to miss.

This year will feature:

Binh Pho
Eli Avisera
Natacha Heitz
Georges Baudot
Aurélien Neira
Jean-François Escoulen
Yann Marot
Thierry Bertheas
Bernard Azéma

During the symposium, there will be several translators to help English-speakers, but all demonstrations will not be translated.

Reception : we will welcome you from the 24th of May at 6PM, where you’ll get your congress file. Then we’ll have a potluck dinner where every demonstrator will be introduced.

Meals : From a caterer.
Accomodation  : The Aiguines area being very touristic, we recommand to make early booking. More info on Tourist Office of Aiguines.
