The Museum is delighted to host the Green Mountain Wood Carvers (GMWC) May July Carve-In!

The GMWC is a group of carvers from Vermont with members from around New England. They meet monthly for “Carve-Ins” at different sites around the state. They also host an annual show and class in Morrisville in August.

At the Carve-In, members will be working on a variety of carving projects.

Carvers are always happy to explain how they carve and to share their expertise with others. Ask questions and become a GMWC member!

** Note, carvers will be meeting in the Treehouse and (weather permitting) on the lawns nearby.
