Administrative history

The Northern Alberta Wood Carvers Association (NAWCA) was established in 1980. The Association aims to promote and support the art of woodcarving and holds weekly meetings to pass skills from expert members to newcomers. The Association regularly donates a tree decorated with hand-carved ornaments to the University of Alberta Hospital's annual "Festival of Trees." At the end of April each year, the Association holds a carving show and competition with many categories and levels for participants of all skill levels to showcase their work.

Custodial history

Charlotte Varem-Sanders was a member of the Northern Alberta Wood Carvers Association.
