No Dead Horses - Writing Club
We will update when we know time & place.
Meets for two hours weekly at Confederation Park. Our membership includes beginners to experienced writers who each
want to challenge themselves through short story, poetry, and other writing opportunities. Lots of talking, laughing and sharing serve as motivation
from this non-threatening environment.
We have maintained our group through ZOOM, but are really looking forward to starting to actually meet together again.
Please join us!
Due to the age of most in the group, I don’t believe we will be meeting again until their is a vaccine.
The woodcarving group met Thursday mornings from 9:00 am to 11:30 from September through June. There is no instructor, but we share ideas and techniques. Many work on similar projects (ie. A bird, animal or caricature), but some have their individual items. Each participant must have their own tools, but we recommend not getting too much until they decide if they like carving. As a minimum they should have a carving knife, gouge and sandpaper, or if using power tools, a Dremel and burrs. Wear work clothes and have a good apron to catch the shavings and dust. Participants, men and women, ranged from beginner to good. A fee is charged for the wood which so far, a member has rough cut on a band saw. Due to space, the group is limited to 12. There were 12 when we shut down. There will be room for 2 or 3 when we start up again.
