The Nova Scotia Wildlife Carvers and Artists Association was formed in 1989 and now has members throughout the Maritimes and Newfoundland. Our first competition was held in the fall of 1989, and since then, some of our carvers have advanced to world class artists, bringing home ribbons from the Ward (World) Competition in Ocean City, Maryland.
The club meets every Thursday from September to June at Army, Navy, Airforce Club, 137 Main Street Dartmouth, N.S. for carving sessions, with a short 1/2 hour business meeting every third Thursday of the month. The sessions include workshop carving projects, but members are also welcome to work on their own carvings. We also have advanced carvers or invited guests to demonstrate specific carving techniques or special interest subjects. Classes and instruction are available through individual members and continuing education courses.
