The annual meeting in Pravia for lathe and wood carving enthusiasts.

If you are a fan of the lathe and wood carving, you can not miss the 10th edition of the Wood Encounters. The event, to which we are partners, is organized by the City Council of Pravia and the Association of Friends of Wood Les Forgaxes. Take note of the dates: April 21, 22 and 23, 2023 at the Institute of Pravia.

The 10th wood encounters represent a unique opportunity for the sector's enthusiasts, as it will bring together the best craftsmen of the peninsula in this field.

During the three days, attendees will be able to enjoy live demonstrations of woodturning, pyrography and interactive and educational workshops, as well as an exhibition with pieces made with these very techniques.

This year there will also feature a new space called El Rincón de Les Forgaxes, where tips and techniques for turning and carving will be taught to beginners. As if this were not enough, there will be a flea market of second-hand tools where visitors will be able to buy, sell or exchange tools.

Lathe demonstrations will be given by master turners Adrian Pena (member of the Association), Joss Naigeon and Vivien Grandouiller. The carving demonstrations will be given by the workshop school El Arte de Forgar de Oviedo.

Discover the most exotic woods at Maderas Barber's booth.

Maderas Barber will display, once again, its large range of woods from different continents, carefully selected and ready to be used in lathe and carving. In our stand you will be able to find pieces of different sizes of Ebony, Indian Rosewood, Bocote and Cypress, among other perfect woods for lathe and carving.

This year, as a novelty, Tuya Root (Tetraclinis articulata), a dense wood with a high oil content, joins the list. Its color ranges from a rich golden brown to almost black and it is a wood commonly used for lathe and carving.

At our stand we will offer advice and guidance on the use of wood for lathe and carving. We will be at your disposal to answer any questions you may have and help you choose the right wood for your project.

The X Wood Encounter collaborates with the Asociación Galban in the fight against children's cancer.

The event aims to raise funds for the Asociación Galban of families of children with cancer in Asturias. We encourage all attendees to participate and support this important cause. Your contribution can make a big difference in the lives of these children and their families.

The Association Amigos de la Madera Les Forgaxes is a non-profit organization that seeks to recover and disseminate the craft of woodturning. Founded in 2011, Les Forgaxes also seeks to disseminate other trades and arts related to woodturning. The Association organizes regular meetings, courses, events and selfless collaborations with charitable purposes in favor of NGOs.
