The Susquehanna River Archaeological Center (SRAC) will host a special event presented by the Catatonk Valley Woodcarvers organization. The event will be held on December 11th, 2010 from noon – 4pm. Nine artisans will exhibit and demonstrate various wood carving techniques and have many hand carved items on sale just in time for Christmas.
The Catatonk Valley Woodcarvers is an organization that is committed to the development and the preservation of wood carving skills. The group began in 1988, and consists of carvers with a wide range of experience from novice to intermediate and professional levels. The event will be a great place for the public to learn about wood carving techniques, new tools, and products from experienced carvers. Items on display will include folk art, marionettes, 3 dimensional art, 3D relief carving, wood chipping, wood carving, wood burning, animated and even life sized wood pieces made by the club members.
Visitors will also be able to taste test biscotti and so much more from Mamma Chisari of Celebrations Catering throughout the event.
