General Notes

Annual subscription of £20, no additional payment unless we have a speaker / demonstration. Newcomers always welcome to free taster session.


Carving Specific Notes

Mainly bird carving with a number of members also involved in stickmaking.

Members usually carve “in the round” or “in relief” and we have just completed a large relief panel depicting the Birds of Attenborough.
