About the group
We are a group of Shropshire woodcarvers that meet, once a week, to indulge in our hobby of woodcarving. We carve, chat (not just about carving), swap ideas, learn new skills and generally enjoy ourselves.

Workshop with Michelle Bolton
Shropshire woodcarvers have often invited carvers to visit to help develop our skill set. This time we approached Michelle Bolton at the Countryfile Show 2016 and with promises of Shropshire Ale and tea on demand she agreed to a visit. This perhaps highlights the value of wood carvers and other 'woodies' having the opportunity to meet others from around the country. To make her journey north of Watford worthwhile and to enable us to get stuck into a project, a whole weekend in October was allocated for this activity.
New Member Info
We welcome new members to join us at any time. We encourage those wishing to take up woodcarving to come for four taster sessions before making a decision on whether to join the group. We will provide the first piece of limewood and set you off on an initial project for which you will be able to use the club carving tools. If you would like to come along to a taster session please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will endevour to arrange your first taster session with us!

Life can get a bit much at times. Occasionally, you just need to find something to take your mind off all the worries and give yourself a deserved break from life’s travails. It doesn’t help that this can stunt your creativity when you may well need it to move forward in life.
