2021 NWSSA Winter Virtual Symposium

2021 NWSSA Winter Virtual Symposium We're Hosting a Virtual Winter Symposium This Year!

For the holiday weekend of January 16-18, 2021, NWSSA has set up a private online forum where we can share videos, pictures, have Q&A discussions, watch live presentations, order tools and t-shirts, and much more.

We encourage you to spend as much time carving as you can, and to share a new work on the theme "Balance".  Join us throughout the weekend!

You are invited to share video tours of your home studios and pictures of what you’re working on – take the video ahead of time with your phone and so long as you can get it up on YouTube or Vimeo or anywhere we can link to, then you can share it. You can join in for live presentations (or watch them later). If you haven't used it before, you will want to download Zoom ahead of time and create and account (and try it out a few times with friends).

You can ask questions about tools and techniques or work out issues you’re having with a particular stone. You can strike up private conversations 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 this is an opportunity to reinvigorate our creative mindset. Let’s make the most of this and take the week to encourage and inspire each other as only we can!

The minimal cost is to cover software, admin fees, and to bolster the NWSSA general fund to cover our yearly costs like book-keeping, insurance, and printing that are usually paid for by symposium fees. If you can’t afford the $55 registration fee, please email Cyra at sirenicity @ gmail and she’ll set you up.

Please use the PayPal registration and watch for instructions on how to sign in (if you have not used the forum before). The forum is easy to navigate and use and we can’t wait to see your shining faces.
