On Sunday, April 19 members of the Connecticut Woodcarvers Association will be bringing their expertise to Flanders Nature Center to hold a demonstration on the craft of woodcarving. People will have the opportunity to meet and watch these award winning wood artists at work. They will be sharing their knowledge and love of their craft and providing tips and techniques on the carving of walking sticks, sculpture and more.
This program is best suited for adults and older children although well supervised younger children are also welcome.
The sticks used for carving that day will all be sustainably harvested from Flanders properties. There will be a display of member’s previously carved pieces as well as some items for purchase.
The program will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the grounds of the Flanders Sugar House located a quarter mile from the intersection of Flanders and Church Hill Roads in Woodbury. The event will be moved inside in the case of inclement weather.
The fee for the demonstration workshop is $5/members and $10 non-members. Pre-registration is required.
Those interested can register online at www.flandersnaturecenter.org or call (203) 263-3711 Ext. 10 for more information.
