Woodturning enthusiasts from across Victoria are in Ararat gleaning knowledge and information from each other as part of an annual Grampians U-Turn event.
Central Western Woodworkers Group, made up of five clubs, meets four times a year and one of the major gatherings is the Grampians U-turn.
The event, which started at Ararat Harness Racing Track on Monday and finishes tomorrow, attracted 54 woodturners and two woodcraft suppliers and timber sellers. Surplus money from raffles during the event goes to district charities.
This year, Ararat Woodworkers Club, hosting the event, is donating $1000 to both Ararat Breast Cancer Support Group and a Kathryn Mills Fund.

Kathryn Mills, formerly of Ararat, was due back in Australia yesterday after travelling to Russia in a desperate fight against multiple sclerosis.
Ms Mills has undergone hematopoietic stem-cell transplant treatment as a last-ditch effort to halt the progression of the disease.
Central Western Woodturners Group involves Ararat, Ballarat, Bendigo, Sunbury and Wimmera clubs.
Organisers hope to again run the event at a similar time next year.
