Individual membership is $20 per year or $30 for a member and their spouse. If joining after October 1, the membership fee includes the following year.

Members meet weekly to carve and socialize. The room is filled with carvers of all ages and abilities utilizing a variety of techniques to create many different kinds of carvings. One may also walk around the room to get ideas for their own new projects, discover different ways of carving, receive help on their current project or just marvel at the rainbow of art going on around them.

For members who have never carved before or have little carving experience the club offers beginners classes. These classes supply the member with the tools, wood, and instructors to get them started in a great hobby. The course of instruction is once a week from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. for approximately 12 consecutive weeks. The class begins with a course in what tools are needed, how to care and sharpen your tools, and when and how each tool is used. Following this introduction the student will be taken step-by-step through various carving projects that are designed to gradually develop ones carving abilities. The class ends with a lesson on how to finish your carvings for presentation.

Intermediate and Advanced classes are offered throughout the year for members who are experienced but wish to expand their talents. These lessons may be from one to three days in length and are taught by some of our extremely talented members or even nationally recognized carving professionals from outside our community.
