10th International Symposium of Wood Sculpture
If you come to into the Ahrntal from 8th to 12th July 2019, you’ll feel like in a gigantic artist’s workshop. Watch the best sculptors from all over the world bringing wooden blocks to life and transforming them into wonderful works of art!
Woodworking is a tradition with very ancient roots in South Tyrol. Regions such as Gröden are especially famous for woodcarving. There, artists create unique products, which are exported almost everywhere.
After the big success in the last years, the international wooden sculptor symposium in Ahrntal will be held for the 10th time. Here, sculptors have the possibility to exhibit their works and sculptures. Moreover, the participants will be faced with the task to realize a work of art within five days.
The artists can work on a larch tree-trunk, which is at maximum 2.2 m long and has a diameter of 0.60 m. On the last day, a jury will award the five best works. In addition, also locals and guests can choose their favorite sculpture.
