Greetings Fellow Woodcarvers

June continues to be a busy month with carving classes for new carvers. We are pleased to have this month chip carving classes instructed by Bill Johnson, a gifted and talented carver who is also a member of the Charlotte Woodcarvers Club. We want to continue the momentum by offering instruction in the various woodcarving venues that are of interest to club members. If you have any suggestions for future classes please let us know and we will try to make it happen.

Now that the location for our 2019 woodcarving show has been decided (CPCC), I would like to turn my attention to further developing the main purpose of the Charlotte Woodcarvers Club. The club was founded on the premise, “ to promote the art of woodcarving”. In addition to our yearly woodcarving show we need to broaden our public persona. I recently received an article from Ray Branch about an ongoing program by the Lancaster, Pa club, to reach out to the youth and general public by offering classes on the techniques of basic woodcarving. They have been successfully conducting this program for the last 13 years. We need to get more youth involved in our art and who knows we might just spark an interest that puts aside the phones and video games that seems to occupy so much of our youth’s time.

START WHERE YOU ARE. USE WHAT YOU HAVE. DO WHAT YOU CAN.&mdashArthur Ashe

Happy Carving,
