A Celebration of
the Coastal Carver

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.
