Virtual Stone Carving Forum


DanandMaya

We are going to keep the forum up and active through the winter with a presentation or two each month on the second Saturday. October 10th is the next one. 

In August, we hosted a private online forum to share videos, pictures, have Q&A discussions, watch live presentations, and much more. Our live event was held August 5-9th, 2020.

We were able to bring a sense of togetherness during this time of separation and distance, when we are all missing each other, and Stone Camp. This event was such a success that our participants requested that we keep the forum running! Going forward, we hope to host monthly social Zoom calls. Our next virtual event is scheduled for Saturday, October 10th

All members who didn't register for the virtual symposium are invited to sign up with a $25 donation to NWSSA to cover software, admin fees.

Private Conversations & Social Zoom Meetings
You can strike up with other carvers and join social Zoom calls in the evenings – perhaps even with multiple campfires. 😊

We’re doing this to bring a sense of togetherness during this time of separation and distance. We all miss each other, and we are missing Stone Camp. Let’s make the most of this and take the week to encourage and inspire each other as only we can!
The minimal cost of $50 per person is to cover software, admin fees, and to bolster the NWSSA general fund to cover our yearly costs like book-keeping, insurance, printing that are usually paid for by symposium fees.
