International wood-carvers symposium

Fine handcrafts

Artists from across the globe flock to the the International wood-carvers symposium in the Ahrntal Valley. Handcrafted wood items achieve true perfection here – it is with this overriding theme that event organisers invite crafters to create fitting pieces of art – on the spot, in front of an audience.

See for yourself how the artists’ painstakingly work on their sculptures, while a brilliant programme of supporting events provides some variety. An expert panel of judges also awards the best pieces, for their individuality and attention to detail in particular.

South Tyrol has enjoyed an exceptional reputation on the artistic scene thanks to its wood carvers, sculptors and handcrafters who show off all of their strengths at the International wood carvers symposium in Lutago.
