Buckeye Woodcarving Round Up

   Posted by: woodbeecarver   in Upcoming Events

The first annual BUCKEYE WOODCARVERS ROUNDUP will be held July 27 through July 30 at Poor Farmers Campground near Piqua, Ohio.  During these four days of informal classes carving students can experience a wide array of carving instructors to try their hand at different carving subjects and themes.  There will be over twenty experienced instructors, tool  and wood vendors on site as well as non-carving classes.

A ROUNDUP is a relaxed and informal way to participate in daily mini workshops and classes to experience various styles and types of carving.  Participants can join any of the workshops for an hour or two , for the whole day or come back for a second day.  Workshops are on a first come basis with the only cost being for the carving project  and a donation if desired for the instructor as all instructors are doing this on a volunteer basis.  A twenty dollar  participation fee is good for all four days   to participate in as many workshops as one chooses.  Workshops will include chip carving, bark carving, small figures, caricatures, ornaments, chainsaw carving, Santa carvings, jewelry and a variety of subjects. 

 More information can be found by visiting the Roundup  web site http://buckeyewoodcarversroundup.webs.com/ .  Camping per night is twenty three dollars and there are motels seven miles away.  Lunch and dinner meals will be available.  Evening hours will also host impromptu carving sessions. 

 For a fun time of learning carving skills along with meeting some of the nicest people in the woodcarving world, plan to be a participant in the Buckeye Woodcarving Round Up.

  I will be there offering workshops on the A-B-C’s of Face Carving using only a knife and safety glove.  Other instructors include Bruce Henn, Floyd Rhadigan, Don Worley, Bruce Nicholas, Steve Brown, Wayne Shinlever, Jim Foster, Jim O’Dea, Mary Weinheimer,Randy True (a complete growing list is on the Roundup web site, so visit it often).
