Northwest Stone Sculptors Association

Save the Dates! 
Sympsoium Group
Camp Brotherhood, Mt. Vernon, WA  Saturday, July 9th - Sunday, July 17th, 2016  
Suttle Lake Symposium, Sisters, OR  Sunday, August 21st - Sunday, August 28th, 2016

Our Symposium Directors are lining up amazing instructors for our 2 annual summer stone carving weeks.  Stay tuned for details!

NWSSA hosts two a year: Suttle Lake (Sisters) Symposium (for over 21years) in Oregon State, and Camp Brotherhood Symposium (for over 28 years) in Washington State. Both symposia offer something for sculptors at all levels. Beginners and intermediate carvers come to learn, grow as artists, and try new things in a supportive environment. Professional sculptors gather to work on projects, share information, get inspiration,  and often to help beginners.

Stone and tools are available for purchase from knowledgeable vendors who know the business and are carvers, too. The teachers vary from year to year, but the overriding theme of our symposiums is always the generous sharing of information with all attendees.

For those who attend it is a working holiday with like-minded folks while being fed three meals a day surrounded by everything to do with stone. Evenings are spent by the fire swapping stories, making new friends, and catching up with connections made from past symposiums.

Symposium price discounts are given to  attendees who are NWSSA members.

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

NWSSA is an association of stone sculptors that was founded in 1984 by Meg Pettibone in Seattle. Our first symposium was in 1986 in the Methow Valley east of the Cascade mountains in Washington state. We have since grown to include stone sculptors and associates throughout the western US, Canada, and other parts of the world. We are a federal tax exempt status 501c nonprofit membership organization.
