Artisans in the Mountains holds woodcarving demo

Oct 23, 2013

Artisan in the Mountains will host a free woodcarving demonstration featuring the Pigeon River Woodcarvers Club from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26 at 99 Depot Street in Clyde.

Pigeon River Woodcarvers Club was founded in 1997 by Frank Burchfield of Waynesville. The Club has nine active members, three of which are charter members, and meets every Saturday afternoon.

The purpose and mission of the Club is to promote woodcarving as an art of the mountain region. This is achieved by attending several festivals for demonstration and carving shows for competition.

The Club also wants to increase their membership numbers and welcomes anyone with an interest in the art. For more information, contact Jim Peterson at or 828 702 5448.
