The Goal of the Great Lakes Woodworking Festival is simple. We want to showcase all the great woodworking talent in the GL region. We believe there is a shift happening in consumer habits. People are choosing to buy handmade goods from the local craftsman. We want to make these folk aware of the artists that are right here in out area and to help forge long term relationships between artisan and buyer.


Choosing inspiration over competition for a stronger community and a healthier way to do business.
