Aout this event

Open Carving Area: September 8, 9, 10, and 11th from 9am-4pm. 

The Open Carving Area is a space within the festival venue for carvers to set up and work on projects. All carvers are welcome to come and carve, share techniques and gather inspiration from fellow coastal carvers of all skill levels. Carvers will also have the opportunity to interact with members of the visiting public that are interested in learning more about carving arts and their work. Simply arrive with your tools and materials and our Open Carving Area host will set you up with a space to carve. There will be some carving grade wood available if you need.
