Host: NWSSA Northwest Stone Sculptors Association Country: USA Open Registration
The Northwest Stone Sculptors Association was founded in 1984 with the purpose of providing access to stone and stone carving tools and to promote stone sculpting in the Northwest. NWSSA has hosted annual symposia since 1987 where stone sculptors, stone and tool suppliers, and friends gather to work and play in a friendly and supportive setting. Two symposia are hosted each year: The biggest event is the annual International Stone Carving symposium held in Mt. Vernon, Washington during July. In early fall NWSSA hosts the Silver Falls Symposium, a smaller, more intimate affair, at the beautiful Silver Falls Park in Oregon.
