Who are we?
Welcome to the website of the Severn Wildlife Carvers (SWC). We are a group with about 27 members who have an interest in art and wildlife and strive to reproduce carvings of those things in nature that interest us as individuals. Our members come from varied age groups, backgrounds and levels of skill from novice to those who have won awards in world class competition. The subjects carved range from birds (mostly) to otters, horses and even butterflies! There is always a selection of carvings on show at each meeting. Our meetings are held at WWT Slimbridge an association we are very proud of. Please refer to the Whats On section for more information. Members of the group attend a number of shows throughout the year in the South West. We display and sell carvings and also demonstrate as we are always looking for new members to join our ranks. If you happen to be at Slimbridge on one of our meetings days please come and have a chat and see what we are up to, you can be sure you will receive a warm welcome. We can be found in the Art area on the ground floor. Walk through the Children's play area and the Aquariums and we are on the left. If you can't find us please ask at the reception desk or ask any Slimbridge member of staff. If you would like to join the group or make a general enquiry please complete the form on the on our Home page. We meet on the second Saturday of the month. Meetings start at 10 a.m. and finish at 3.30 p.m. (approximately).The annual subscription is £10.00. Attendance at group meetings is free.
