Program Notes

September 16. Carving a face does not have to be hard, and Robert will show us how on a corner of a wood block. The finished carving could be used as an ornament.

October 21. An ornament-sized chickadee in different styles of carving will be presented by Barbara and Adelle. Your choice of how to carve and finish yours, or try all the different styles. Cutouts are $2.

November 18. The subject is an ornament-sized sitting raccoon taught by Barbara. Cutouts are $2.

December 16. Our traditional Holiday Party. Bring a guest and food. Followed by carving.

February 4 to 7. Florida Woodcarvers Roundup in Clearwater. Visit the website at http://webspace. for up-to-date information. About 18 different instructors now, including Barbara. Good idea to get motel or RV reservations now.

Weekend Workshop
March 1 & 2, 2014

Gary Falin is an outstanding caricature carver who was elected as a member of Caricature Carvers of America. He has been here before teaching his caricatures and teaches regularly in a number of places such as John C. Campbell Folk School and the Renegade Woodcarving Workshop. Gary has dozens of roughouts including both human figures and animals. You get to choose what you want to carve. We will bring some completed carvings to business meetings for you to see. He spends individual time with each student and you will leave with at least one finished carving.

The cost is $100 for two days of instruction payable to the club. Each student is responsible for paying Gary directly for the roughouts. There are 10-12 spaces in the workshop. The time will probably be 9 to 5 each day. The place will be announced later.
