The CarvingConsortium Listserv
has been active since January '97. The Carving Consortium
was the outgrowth of an online group of 28 dedicated eraser carvers
who communicated by sending e-mail messages to one another through
an online mailing list.
January 2002 a change was made to replace the verbage of "Eraser
Carving" to "Soft Block Carving and Printing".
Historically, many of our members' first carving experiences
were with erasers. As a natural progression with their art, many
have incorporated the use of larger blocks of soft carving materials
which enable the creation of larger images. The descriptive words
now express that artistic change.
The Carving Consortium is an international group. Members
of the Carving Consortium represent the full spectrum, from beginner
to the advanced soft block carver.
If you are new to our group please
for an eraser carving description.
The CarvingConsortium list is currently a restricted list.
It is private yet open to anyone who respectfully refers to our
guidelines and restrictions, and will provide their street address
by e-mail to Linda.
The Carving Consortium is an intentional group.
Although the members may not be aware of this, the decisions
for the group are based on specific intentions and purposes.
As we grow this continues to be of primary importance. In the
time ahead, I may be giving this added attention with our members
and asking for specific feedback. It is time that our members
begin developing an understanding of the foundation of our group
and what is consistent and what is inconsistent regarding our
plan for growth.
