Have you ever wished you could CARVE?
Bill McGinnis and the other carvers invite you to join
them on Tuesday mornings between 8:00 and 11:00 AM. They will let you
borrow tools to give you a feel for the art and start you on a
beginner’s project. They will guide you in the best and correct ways to
create carvings for your and others’ enjoyment. For less than $100 you
can purchase a great starter kit that will put you well on your way to
becoming a carver!
See you on Tuesday!
