“Carving is a source of joy to the artist. . . . To attack the raw material, gradually to extract a shape out of it following one’s own desire,
or, sometimes, the inspiration of the material itself: this gives the sculptor great joy.”

Our 2020 Woodcarving Rendezvous (ESWR) has been postponed until 2021.  We will miss having all of the participants, new and returning, on the ESSA Campus, carving away!  This event truly feels like a family reunion year after year and we can’t wait to make it bigger and better than ever!  

In the meantime, please enjoy looking through the photos from past ESWR years!
