45th Annual Exhibit and Sale

Saturday August 18, 2018

Waterbury, Vermont


On Saturday August 18th, we will be returning to Rusty Parker Park in downtown Waterbury for our 45th Carving Show. excited to return to Waterbury once again this year. Carvers from around Vermont and New England will be displaying their work, including many from the Central Vermont area. In addition to the displays, demonstrations are planned throughout the day of carving styles and methods, including an opportunity for kids (of all ages) to try their hand at soap carving. This is a good opportunity to learn how woodcarvers, using simple hand tools transform a block of wood into a piece of art. As always, the Show is free and everyone is encouraged to attend.

 

 


The Green Mountain Wood Carvers was organized about 55 years ago by Collise Brown from Waterville Vermont to bring together people interested in the art of wood carving. At present, we have about 75 members from Vermont as well as other states across New England.

Members of the club meet the second Saturday of each month for a "Carve-In". The Carve-Ins' are held at members houses and shops across the state, and provide an opportunity for members to gather, work on a projects and share ideas. In addition to our monthly Carve-Ins, each August, the Club plans a week long series of events including a carving class, and our Annual August Show and Sale held in Waterbury Vermont.

You don't need to be an accomplished carver to join the GMWC, our members range from first time carvers to professional carvers. Members work in all aspects of wood carving including relief, chip, caricatures, birds and wild fowl. Are members are always willing to help new carvers get started.
