What you might find at our Silver Falls Symposium, August 28-Sept 01, 2010

           NWSSA’s fall stone carving symposium happens every year in a special place. Oregon’s Silver Falls State Park has preserved a lavish display of dense forest stitched with miles of trails leading us to no fewer than ten magnificent waterfalls. Right in the center of this wonder is a tree shrouded meadow where we set up work tables to hold the stones on which we will work. Our hands, our tools and our creativity will change the stone forever, and the stone, having its own form of creativity, changes us as well.


       If you're am old hand at carving, you know what I'm talking about, but if you are new to stone and come anyway, it’s still possible that you will leave with nothing more than a fabulous few days with a fun group of new friends. Or you may, like so many of us, find much more than that. You may discover that you have let out that small thing that you have long suspected was in you. You just may let loose that creative spark that will turn you into a stone sculptor. Wouldn’t it be good to find out?
