Open Carving Area – September 7th-12th, 2017

September 7, 2017 - September 12, 2017

The Open Carving Area recreates the workshop environment for the carvers. In this relaxed atmosphere you will find a diversity of styles and skill levels, all actively working on their craft. This is a rare opportunity for the public to interact with the artists and for the artists to build relationships with each other. The festival has become known as a very inclusive and generous place for sharing all aspects of the trade. Many artistic collaborations and long term friendships have been born out of the connections made here. Carving artists are encouraged to pick up whatever carving project they have in progress and become an active part of making something special happen at the 2017 Carving On The Edge Festival.

Call out to Women Carvers! On Saturday Sept 9th, we will be creating a circle of women carvers in the Open Carving Area. We are reaching out to women carvers of all skill levels to come make wood chips, learn tips from each other and have some fun. We are excited to create an inclusive to support the next generation of female carving artists.

Please contact us if you are interested in setting up a workspace during the festival.
