Richmond Carvers was founded in 1988. This year is the 28th Annual Wood Carving Show. The show attracts a high standard of carvers from as far as Saskatchewan, Vancouver Island and Washington State. There are typically several hundred carvings to be judged at the show.
This year the show is part of the Canada 150 celebrations with special categories including prize money of over $3,500. Admission is free.
This show is the largest one of the year, but watch for regular demonstrations at Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site, and at the Maritime Festival in August.
New members are always welcome, both young and old, who wish to embark on a most satisfying hobby. Club members are always ready to teach and encourage carvers of all skill levels.
