First club meeting of 2021 will be held at Dave and Joan's place on May 8th at 8:30am. Bring your chair, sharp knife and conversation. Lots to catch up on. 

It looks like the picnic turned out pretty good. There is a buzz in the air about starting meetings again from what I hear also. More to come on that. Here are some pictures from the Eerkes place.

During the last year we have all been missing our meetings. I know in my case some of the time usually spent carving has gone to other things. We are starting to see some activity again though and hope to see some group gatherings again soon. Keep a lookout for emails and keep yourself healthy and safe.

The Southwest Woodcarvers Association (SWA) was founded in October, 1983. The SWA, located in Tucson is chartered as a non-profit corporation in the State of Arizona. Although we have members from several areas of the country, the SWA serves mainly the Southern Arizona area.

The membership of the SWA consists of wood carvers from the beginner level to several Master Carvers. As in most carving organizations you will find the members to be friendly and genuinely interested in your work, and very willing to provide assistance when asked!

The purposes of the Association are:

  1. To assist members in receiving recognition for their form of art.

  2. To promote exhibits of their art.

  3. Offer assistance to those who wish to learn various methods of wood carving.
