NAWC Calling Cards

In 1974, a woodcarving group organized to form the North Arkansas Woodcarvers Club. It was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1992 under the laws of the State of Arkansas. In 2000, it was recorded with the IRS as a 501C3 organization, allowing all donations to be tax deductible. Membership averages 150 members, most residing in Baxter and Marion Counties.
We are blessed with many talented carvers in our club who willingly teach our beginnerís classes to current members. The only cost involved is for the Beginnerís Kit. More advanced classes are offered at little or no cost to the carver with the exception of the wood/blank. Members who travel to various parts of the country and teach specialty carving classes are sometimes available to teach locally. Instructors from outside the club are occasionally available. A monthly newsletter for members contains a Calendar of Events which includes classes that are scheduled both locally and in other areas.

Beginnerís Kits (required for beginnerís classes) include 1 knife, a safety glove, and wood/blanks and patterns for 6 projects. Excellent carving tools can be purchased from club members at reasonable prices. Some also offer Northern Basswood and Butternut.


The club meets every Thursday at the VFW Hall at 7th and Grey Streets in Mountain Home. The hall is open 8†a.m. until 1†p.m. The General Meeting is the third Thursday of the month at 10:30 a.m. All pertinent club business is handled at this meeting. Members are encouraged to display their latest carvings at a Show and Tell.

Our Club supports the community in many ways. Some of the community efforts the Club is participating in include carving classes for the Baxter County Library summer youth program, support of regional cultural arts development efforts and community service organization fundraising drives. Our members have donated time to various carving projects in the community such as the Mountain Home Christian Clinic and Cooper Park. The park projects include the large tree mural in the Youth Center at Cooper Park, two totem poles and a stump in the parkís lower area. All of these carvings are definite assets to the city, and have been admired and praised by many city and state officials.

Another asset our City enjoys is our Annual Woodcarving Show which has been a part of the community for more than 30 years. The Show offers our community and region the opportunity to see, enjoy and appreciate the skill, creativity and beauty of wood carving firsthand. This exciting two day event is held in early May of each year and attracts carvers from all over the country as well as drawing many people to our City.
