Mystic Carvers

Mystic Carvers Club meets on the last Sunday of every month. Special events and holidays will move that date from one Sunday to another occasionally.










2024 promises to be an active woodcarving seminar year.  Plans are underway to offer a variety of classes in woodcarving and painting.  Stay tuned as plans develop for the following:


JANUARY 12-14th BIG E WOOD SHOW


Mystic Carvers Club and the New England Woodcarvers club plan to set up an area to demonstrate the art of woodcarving. A "woodcarving for youths" session will be offered on Saturday, January 13, 2024 from 1 pm - 3pm.  Everything needed will be supplied at no cost.  Basic carving tools plus wood and safety guidelines will be demonstrated.  Also common cuts with a knife (such as paring cuts, push and levering cuts, "V" cuts, stop cuts and score lines) will be demonstrated.  There will be several small carving projects set up for practice.  Club members are encouraged to sign up for shifts to staff our booth.  This has always been a fun weekend.
