What do you get as a member?  

The opportunity to join a vibrant local group of like-minded carvers. Regional groups meet regularly and provide an opportunity for learning, exchanging ideas, enjoyable conversation and a time to carve (always difficult to find in our busy lives)

The Woodcarver Gazette is an in-house colour magazine that is delivered to your door 4 times a year. It contains Regional news; interviews with leading carvers; books, DVDs and tool reviews; a gallery of finished works; and advertisements from leading tool suppliers.

Have Third Party Public Liability Insurance cover at all BWA workshops and all other events when you are participating as a BWA Member.
