Woodcarving Seminars

Each year, AWC hosts a variety of seminars taught by some of the foremost carvers in the world. Classes range from one-day to five-days; topics include woodcarving, clay sculpting, painting, pyrography, and many more. There are often classes offered for the non-carving participant.

Anyone who is a member of AWC Ltd. can take a seminar. Membership is $20.00 per year (USA), $25.00 (Foreign) and runs the calendar year from January to December.  You may join or renew your membership using the Seminar Registration Form below or the stand-alone membership form HERE

Impromptu gatherings of carvers during the evening hours offer many opportunities to  socialize, pick up different carving techniques and perhaps a trade secret or two.

Specific seminar topics and costs are announced in the “Congress Newsletter” sent to all dues paying members. The seminar description flyer is also available for download further below on this page.
