Welcome to Lancashire & Cheshire Woodcarvers

About the club

Lancashire & Cheshire Woodcarvers was formed in 1992 to promote woodcarving across the two counties and to allow its members to share a common enthusiasm, ideas and improve their carving skills in a friendly and supportive club.   Carvers of all levels of experience are welcome, and beginners can be sure of a friendly reception.

We currently have over 30 members.    

During most of the year we meet monthly on a Saturday and regularly have speakers and demonstration on carving techniques and wider woodcraft. Optionally there are also a regular weekly informal carving sessions on a Thursday for the majority of the year. For full details  click here .

Members have access to the club’s extensive library of carving books and videos. The club also has tools that are available for beginners to use at meeting.
