alistserv focused on the art of
Soft Block Carving and Printing
with attention to the Creative Process
The Carving Consortium Listserv has been active sinceJanuary '97. The Carving Consortium was the outgrowth of anonline group of 28 dedicated eraser carvers whocommunicated by sending e-mail messages to one anotherthrough 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 carvingexperiences were with erasers. As a natural progressionwith their art, many have incorporated the use of largerblocks of soft carving materials which enable the creationof larger images. The descriptive words now express thatartistic change.
The Carving Consortium is an international group. Membersof the Carving Consortium represent the full spectrum, frombeginner to the advanced soft block carver.
