There is no instructor, but we share ideas and techniques. The group will lend you some tools to try out during the introduction, but each participant must have their own tools after that. As a minimum, a carving knife, gouge, sandpaper are needed, or if using power tools a Dremel and burrs. Wear work clothes and have a good apron to catch the shavings and dust. Participants, both men and women, range from beginner and up. A fee is charged for the wood rough cut. Due to space, the group is limited to ten (10) and is divided into two rooms - Room #1 and Room #3. Five participants for each room.
If you decide to join the group, you must be a member of Confederation Park 55+ Activity Centre and there will be a quarterly fee to Confederation Park for the wood carving session.
