Club Activity Schedule

Mini Lessons for 2022

We have started some mini carving lessons starting in January. They will be held on Wednesdays at KenRock during our usual Wednesday morning sessions.  It is thought that a member will bring in the materials  for a carving, woodburning, etc. and share their knowledge and help in completing the project. 

We need some ideas for these mini lessons and a brave volunteer to lead sessions.  All members of this club are very talented and many are especially talented in their given style.  Please feel free to submit ideas to Richard Dunphy and volunteer to be a presenter.  It will take everyone to make this fun, informative, and improve our craft.  Gordy Moscinski
