Carving on the Edge Festival



Aout this event

The Carving Club is an informal gathering of carving artists. It is an opportunity for carvers to hang out and ply their craft in the company of each other. The club is open all levels of experience, from those who have never carved before to accomplished professional artists.

Learning and being inspired from each other is a natural byproduct of coming together. It is difficult to find mentorship opportunities, professional arts training and gathering spaces to share knowledge in our remote communities. Carving Club was inspired by the desire to sustain the energy of creative community that is felt at the biennial Carving on the Edge Festival. We are creating a place to come together to perpetuate this art form.

Everyone welcome! Bring projects that you are currently working on or contact us if you aren't sure where to start. Limited tools are available to borrow.

Drop-in anytime between 6pm-9pm. Thank you to the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust for providing the space and to Ocean Outfitters for financial support.

Robinson Cook

Since 2014, Robinson has been a key contributor to the success of the workshops programming component of the Carving on the Edge Festival. He has instructed several workshops himself, taken a leadership role in coordinating artist instructors and overseen production. Robinson’s community mindedness and long-standing relationships with artists in the carving community have contributed to his success in facilitating and growing the Open Carving Area. Following the 2018 festival, Robinson formed the Carving on the Edge Carving Club, an informal bimonthly gathering of carvers that was inspired by the desire to keep the momentum going from the festival and to support people who are not carving every day.
