Timp Woodturners Association is a non-profit club dedicate to the art & craft of woodturning. Timp Woodturners was started in 2008 and is a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners (AAW) based in Provo, Utah, serving individuals across the Wasatch Front. Club members benefit from opportunities to participate in monthly educational, social and charitable activities.

"Woodturning is a unique form of woodworking that dates back to ancient Egypt. Woodturning is done on a lathe, a machine that holds and spins wood securely while it is shaped with sharp carving tools. Historically, woodturning has been used to create functional objects like chair legs, candlesticks, and bowls. Today, lathe-turned work is also understood as an art form and vehicle for individual enrichment, creativity, and self-expression. It can be found in galleries and museums around the world. Pieces may be functional, ornamental, or even sculptural. With a modest learning curve, woodturning engages people from age 8 to 108, and the skills acquired last a lifetime." (-AAW)

Club members participate in a monthly meeting which includes demonstration instruction. Demonstrators are selected from club, local and guest talent <96>with instruction directed to turners of all ages and at all levels of expertise.
