15th Annual Fall Carve In
The Cherry Ridge Carvers is sponsoring the 15th Annual Fall Carve In. The Carve In is an opportunity to learn the art and craft of woodcarving. It is also for sharing experiences and ideas about woodcarving. The event is September 21 to the 23rd. We will start around 1:00 PM on Friday the 21st and finish around 4:00 PM on the 23rd. The Carve In is held at Cherry Ridge Campsites, home of the Northeast Woodcarvers Roundup. Friday and Saturday, we will end each night around 8:00 or 9:00 PM.
There are no handouts, no set schedule and no pre-registration. This weekend is about getting together and carving. When you arrive, every participant is expected to sign a waiver. Then check the boards for classes, locate that class and enjoy your time at the Fall Carve In.
