The Jersey Hills Wood Carvers (JHWC) is a small, diverse group of people sharing their passion, time, knowledge and joy of woodcarving. The club's objective is to promote interest in and appreciation of the art of wood carving to all.
Membership is free and open to anyone interested in woodcarving regardless of their ability. The “hands-on setting” of our meetings allows members and visitors the opportunity for practice and guidance. Please come and visit us at one of our meetings to see some of the great projects the club members are working on.
The club began in 1983 as a natural continuation of an evening school class at the high school. The first club-wide project was a large totem pole, hand carved for the Watchung Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The totem pole, completed in the spring of 1991, still stands at Camp Winnebago. Since then, the JHWC, has undertaken several other community service projects, and has grown considerably.
The members — men and women — meet to share their talents, tell stories, and continue to develop and preserve the art of woodcarving. The members also volunteer their time doing demonstrations at several venues including the NJ State Fair in Sussex County, Jefferson Day, the Pequest Fish Hatchery, the Ramsey Outdoor Store, Lord Sterling Park and others.
If you would like to get more information, or get involved, just attend one of the JHWC meetings, or visit the website at http://www.jerseyhillswoodcarver.com.
