North Alabama Woodcarvers Association - NAWA

NAWA is a community of woodcarvers located in Huntsville, Alabama in the heart of the Tennessee Valley.  We are passionate about promoting the love of carving, wood sculpting, whittling, and wood burning as an art and a hobby.   We offer free classes in basic woodcarving, chip carving, and relief carving and hold an annual show and competition at the historic Round House in downtown Huntsville.  Woodcarving is not difficult to learn, the tools to begin are not expensive, and we believe it will give you a lifetime of pleasure.  We hope you will stay a while, explore our website, and join us soon at a monthly meeting, an Open Carving Session, a woodcarving class, or you can write to us at: for more information.
