The Mission of the Mystic Carvers Club is to:
a.) Stimulate interest in carving as a hobby or profession and as an art form.
b.) Provide for instruction in carving to aid others in the practice of carving.
c.) Promote and provide an annual show and retreat. These events will each be held once a year, in July and October respectively.
The Club consists of approximately 130 members, consisting of about 90 men and 40 women.
We meet on a monthly basis at the Quiambaug Firehouse, 50 Old Stonington Rd., Mystic.
We meet on the last Sunday of every month, beginning at 10 a.m. and carve for the next three hours.
At 1 p.m. we have a short Club meeting and then adjourn.
Every meeting includes a Novice group, where a more experienced carver will provide projects and training in wood carving to new carvers.
We generally host 6 - 8 carving seminars a year, an annual show in May and a yearly retreat over the Columbus Day weekend in October.
Dues are $10.00 per year, membership includes a monthly newsletter.
