Welcome to The

British Woodcarvers Association

Welcome to the official site of the British Woodcarvers Association, otherwise known as the BWA.

The association exists to advance and promote the art and craft of wood carving and sculpture in all its forms, to encourage the exchange of ideas between members, promote best practice and to enable wood carvers and sculptors to promote their work to a wider audience.

On this website you will find details of everything to do with woodcarving; from joining the BWA, to buying the necessary tools and timber, from commissioning a carver, to finding tuition. There is also news of BWA meetings and events.
