MAPG 2016 is well on its way to be another exciting event! This will be our 4th year and we expect to have a new series of interesting
demonstrations, some old and new vendors, a couple of contests, and through the generosity of a great group of vendors and fellow pen makers, thousands
of dollars in door prizes. Check back regularly for updated schedule and registration as we firm up the plans.
DEMONSTRATORS (tentative list):
Barry Gross of Arizona Silhouette will demo a few finishes and some tricks with colored pencils.
This will be three in a row for Barry and we love to have him.
Curtis Seebeck of TurnTex Woodworks teaches the Art and Science of Stabilizing. Curtis gave us an
introduction at our first MAPG, but he tells us he's learned a few things since.
Doug Thompson of Thompson Lathe Tools will give a talk on tool steels. We're looking forward to this one and
may even be tempted to get a bowl gouge. Doug has supported each MAPG with fabulous door prizes.
Jon David Jones of Signature Pen Company will demo "Pens - The Decal Method" will go over where to buy materials, what to buy, and so on. He will demonstrate how to do a decal pen from start to finish.
Neil Drumheller of Severn Wharf Custom Rods introduces Thread Weaving Pen Blanks. This is one of the coolest ideas to hit the market. If it's good for fishing rods, it will be great for pens.
Jonathon Brooks of Carolina Pen Company will continue to amaze us with his custom kitless pen making skills and knowledge.
Mark James will be back with the IAP collection - enter our contests and you too could be immortalized.
