The beloved founder of Charlotte Woodcarvers Club has moved to his heavenly home on June 19th, 2011 at the age of 91. His passion for carving will be greatly missed.

The Charlotte Woodcaarvers Club was founded in 1982 by Woodcarvers and Lee Dykes, for the purpose of advancing the art of woodcarving.
Throughout the year we sponsor:

  • Weekly carving in Matthews and Charlotte, details below.
  • Woodcarving instruction from beginner through advanced. Some taught by club members, and some taught by professional carvers.
  • An annual summer picnic and Christmas party.
  • Sponsor of the Southeast's largest woodcarvers showcase.
