The Ottawa Woodworkers Association (OWA) is organizing the Ottawa Woodworks Conference on the weekend of the 26-28 of September 2014. After seeing the first link to the event, I started to poke around on the web site of the event and did not wait too long to register.
Here are a few conference speakers :
- Chris Schwarz – Lost Art Press
- Tom Fidgen – Unplugged Woodshop
- Garrett Hack
- Ron Barter – Rosewood Studio
- Mark Harrell – Bad Axe Toolworks
- Linda Manzer – Manzer Guitars
- Konrad Sauer – Sauer & Steiner planes
There will also be a market place so that we, participant, can feast our eyes and spend a little :-). The event is held at the Algonquin College Heritage Institute, Perth, Ontario. Although I am not a local, I would encourage people around the area to participate. For me, this is pretty much the closest I could get to most of these speakers, even though it is a bit over 2 hours drive from home, but I’m sure it will be worth the stay close by for the week-end.
The event is pretty close to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada’s capital and host to many attractions if you ever want to extend your stay beyond the conference.
