Who We Are
The Caygeon Carvers began in the Spring of 1987 with a few interested carvers and presently has approximately 20 male and female members of all skill and age levels.
When We Meet
The club meets every Tuesday afternoon (1:00 to 3:00 p.m.) from September to June.
Where We Meet
The club meets in the Henderson House, which is located in the Kawartha Settlers Village in Bobcaygeon.
Club membership is open to anyone having an interest in carving wood. Although bird carving is predominant we have a cross-section of abilities and interests, which are freely shared and encouraged among the membership. Members are expected to purchase a membership in Kawartha Settler’s Village and pay a $3.00 fee for each meeting attended with the funds being used for books and other materials for the benefit of the members and to contribute to the operation of Settlers Village.
Local Competitions and Shows
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.
