SEPTEMBER 24, 2021


Join us in September for an Artist Talk with local artist Christen, where he will discuss how he has been keeping busy during the pandemic, including a Stave Church project he has been working on with carvers in Norway. 





Our story

The Carving on the Edge Festival seeks to inspire the growth of the traditional and contemporary west coast carving arts through celebration, education and relationship-building, within the traditional territories of the Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations. 

Community Projects

The festival has grown to support relationship-building in the contemporary and traditional carving communities, with programs led by master carvers, and guided by First Nations values, blending tradition and history with contemporary relevance.
