Suttle Lake Stone Sculptors Symposium
August 24th - 30th, 2015 - Oregon

Continuing the Discussion of Eastern and Western traditions and the use of High Tech.

Suttle Lake Camp, Oregon

The Northwest Stone Sculptors Association is excited to be holding our annual Oregon State Stone Carving Symposium at a new venue this year!  We welcome you to Suttle Lake Camp! 

The symposium is open to all levels from beginners who have never carved stone before to the experienced sculptor. Make new friends, renew old friendships and fire up the creative spirit in a rich, supportive environment.

Suttle Lake Camp is nestled on the eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountains, about 14 miles west of Sisters,Oregon. Suttle Lake Camp is a special place where the vivid green of Western Oregon mingles with the sunny beauty of the eastern part of the state. Mid-afternoons, you might find the time to cool off with a swim, paddle a boat across the lake, take a leisurely bike ride or walk along the trails nearby.

Workshops and Instruction: Our inclusive community will set up a circle of tents to carve, share, learn and be invigorated. From the beginner's tent to the professional's tool chest, there are ample ways to advance one's ideas, talents and learning.

Extensive carving sessions are interspersed with informative classes and stimulating sculpting lessons. Field instructors are always available to help guide you through your challenges. Bring your gear (if you are a beginner, we have tools you can use), connect to our power, water and air sources and peruse the tools and variety of stones being carved and available for purchase.

Our evenings bring professionals to show their images and expertise in a broad range of sculpture. Revel under the stars at the campfire before turning in for a well-deserved rest.

Sign up early to reserve your spot for an international hit this summer.  Work study positions are available by application.

We listened to your input and have begun scheduling half to full day workshops to bring small groups of carvers together. [CLICK HERE] look them over for the details and register.   

This Winter, we will have workshop at Portland Community College - and we are looking to also bring together people in the Eugene/Salem/Vancouver British Columbia area. 

We'll keep you informed and ask that you keep checking the "Upcoming Workshops" (under "Events and News") part of the web site.

Here are some of the workshops we have held, if you'd like to see them presented again, drop us a note:  Sharpening Tools,  MarenakosPedestals, Photographing 3D Art, Neolithic Stone Tour Turning Your Stone into Bronze,  Carving Face and Human HeadWorking From Your Strengths To Find YOUR Way,  Professional Photography of your Artwork, Carving the Human Figure, Field Trip to Olivine/Dunite Quarry, Abstract on OrcasPolishing Hard StoneWorking Wet; Dust Free Stone Carving , ART(ifacts) To What End?

AND to further encourage new and renewing members, the board has decided to reduce NWSSA membership to $45. If you plan on attending two or more workshops, becoming a member makes good sense. Take a look and see if
