Meetings and Community Programs

Ferris High School, 3020 E 37th Ave, Spokane, WA


Club Mentoring Workshops are on the third Saturday of the month at Riverview Retirement Community’s Woodshop. Starts at 9am and goes until the last person leaves.

These hands-on mentoring workshop are intended to help members gain confidence using the lathe and woodturning tools and may include brief demonstrations. Members should plan on bringing their own woodturning tools and wood so they may become more more familiar with them in their own shops.

Riverview’s Woodshop

1711 East Ross Ct., Spokane, WA

We will always be grateful to Rosemary and Nick from Woodcraft Spokane for kindly allowing our club to meet in their store. Conditions have changed, and as a thank-you for our club member's contribution to the Ferris High School woodworking program we have been offered use of their woodworking shop for our monthly meetings and our Saturday workshops. A few decades ago, this club started out in an old, small shop at Ferris.  It is remarkable and wonderful that we are back in a new and extremely large shop. It is spacious and well equipped and a great fit for our activities!

Community Programs

High School Student Mentoring is once a week from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm

We assist students through demonstrations and mentoring while turning on various size lathes and projects, while encouraging safety. The students are all eager to learn and make something they can take home!


Our “Lend-a-Lathe” Program is designed primarily for new turners getting started in woodturning. Currently a Rikon Midi  and a Jet Midi are available, with an initial 3-month loan period for members.  For questions, applications and supporting materials please complete the form on the “Contact INW” page.
