Membership of the BDWCA is open to all.

The Association welcomes carvers, collectors and anyone who has an interest in the art of carving wild birds in wood.

If you would like to try your hand at bird carving there is a wide range of help available to you.

Members are encouraged to share their skills and experiences with others wherever possible – through local carving groups, demonstrating at shows, and mentoring new carvers.

Information is also shared through the ­Association’s ­magazine – 'Wingspan'.
