The IAW Experience

For 11 years the Idaho Artistry in Wood and Gourds Show has brought together hundreds of wood and gourd artists and thousands of guests from the northwest. IAW is a non-profit collaboration of five art and craft clubs from the Idaho area. We’re unified in our love for artistry in wood and gourds. This year we're celebrating our 12th anniversary, find out more about this year's show here
