Kawartha Carving Competition

Buckhorn Carvers

Who We Are

The Buckhorn Carvers is a club for the beginner to advanced carver. While carving is our primary interest, the club is an opportunity to get to know other carvers or just meet and socialize with people in the community.

When We Meet

The Club meets every Thursday afternoon (1:00 to 4:00 p.m.). Each year, the club hosts an annual Christmas party and a wrap up potluck barbeque in June.

Where We Meet

The Club meets at the Buckhorn Community Centre, 1801 Lakehurst Road in Buckhorn.


Club membership is open to people having all carving abilities (hobbyist / beginner to advanced) whether you are interested in birds, wildlife, chip, in the round, or relief carving. Club membership is open to carvers at all skill levels. Members share their knowledge, tips and tricks-of-the-trade. A library of material is available. The annual fee is $30.00 together with a $2.00 weekly contribution.

Want to Learn to Carve?

For a modest investment of $40.00, you receive a one-year membership, a carving knife, carving blank, pattern, and all the help your will need.

Annual Show and Competition

In the fall of each year, the Bobcaygeon Carving Club, the Buckhorn Carvers, and the Lindsay Seniors Carving Club host a show and competition in Bobcaygeon. The competition is open to carvers in the beginner, novice, intermediate and advanced levels in a variety of different categories. Monetary prizes and ribbons are awarded. Visitors delight in watching demonstration carving and talking to carvers about their hobby and creations. Carvings are offered for sale and carving suppliers are available to sell materials, tools, books and patterns. Visit Kawartha Carving Competition for more details.
