About Turning Around America: Mobile Workshop

My name is Beth Ireland,

I am a Woodturner/Artist/Educator. Four years ago Jenn Moller and I conceived of a traveling educational program, we call Turning Around America. The main goal of this project is to empower people through the simple act of making an object in wood. The first project consisted of a seven-month journey around the country teaching hand skills through woodturning and woodworking to as many groups and individuals possible.

Through our web site www.turningaroundamerica.com you will be able to watch woodturning lessons, follow my route, read our blog, meet the people we meet and learn more about our project. In the first project I travelled around America in a in a uniquely modified van that is part workshop and part living space.

 
In order for this project to continue we need your help. We are asking for financial support. Your money will go toward gas, food, video, web production and materials to teach with. Give any amount you can. No Donation is too small or too large – Every little bit helps! You can go to my web site and push the donate button, or send a check to: 
 Turning Around America, 33 Ashfield Street, Roslindale, MA 02131


The Route of the first journey is located on the web site. If you know of a school, club or community group that would be interested in learning woodturning or woodworking please go to the contact information of the web site. The project is about education and empowerment. Please pass this message on to as many people as you can.

 


 Thank You.
With gratitude,
Beth Ireland and Jenn Moller
