Museum Gallery: May 2-May 30
The Woodworkers Association of West Alabama, better known as WAWA, is a non-profit organization that promotes woodworking as an art form. Monthly meetings feature guest speakers, comradery, and the sharing of tips learned over time. The group began meeting roughly 26 years ago in the home of member Peter Siegel. As the group attracted more members, meetings moved to a church meeting room. In the early 2000s, member Dr. Alex Todorov volunteered his workshop for the meetings.
Each year, WAWA demonstrates at the Kentuck Festival of the Arts, helping countless children make their own birdhouses to take home. The group also holds a yearly show at Jim Harrison’s Gallery in downtown Tuscaloosa during the month of November.
