February 9, 2019 CarveIn
Barb & Wood Taylor's - Putney, Vermont
Our February Carve-in will once again be hosted by Barb and "Wood" Taylor. The shop is usually clean and the wood stove running when we arrive, and in addition to all the donuts and other snacks, Wood or Dave often has a pattern for us to try our knives on. For lunch and our meeting, we move to the house and Barb usually has a nice warm soup to fill us up before the meeting. It's a bit of a drive from the north, but always worth the trip, and a good chance to Carpool if you live "up north", as well as a good location for member's living in southern Vermont.

Take I-91 North to the Putney Exit #4, then Route 5 north (about 6 miles), passing Harlow's Sugar House on the right, just past the Sugar House clock the mileage from the bridge going past I-91, the shop is 2 miles on the left.
The Green Mountain Wood Carvers was organized about 60 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.
