Welcome!

2018 marks the 42nd year of an incredible collection of woodcarvers and students coming together from all over the United States and Canada for learning, carving, comradeship and a great time.

To promote and continue the art of woodcarving, the Mid-America Woodcarvers Association began the MAWA Woodcarving Experience at Doane, a unique week of woodcarving instruction located on the beautiful Doane University campus in Crete, Nebraska.

Annually, talented instructors and students are brought together for an intensive week of instruction and carving. 

The MAWA Woodcarving Experience at Doane offers instruction in over 20 classes, representing several techniques and styles of carving to choose from. Classes are offered for beginner, intermediate and  advanced carvers.

In our ongoing effort to provide students with the best carving opportunities, we are proud to welcome back many of our past instructors as well as offering new classes annually. 

One-A-Day classes are also offered for those accompanying carving students, as well as impromptu carving classes throughout the week.

Mark your calendars!
On February 1, 2018, Class descriptions will be  available, and enrollment will begin.
