Cape Fear Woodcarvers

The Cape Fear Woodcarvers Club was founded in 1995 and has grown to become an important arts resource in the Wilmington-Cape Fear area. The club membership includes more than 70 men and women, who come from as far north as Jacksonville, and as far south as Calabash, and all points in between, in the greater Wilmington-Cape Fear region.

The club meets every Thursday morning. Club meetings are hands-on sessions where members work on their latest projects and share information and tips on carving. At any meeting you will observe carvers working on fine detailed bird sculptures, stylistic natural finished woodcarvings, caricatures, plaques, fish, decoys, relief panels, flowers, decorated walking sticks – and the list goes on. Members’ skills range from beginner to advanced carvers who have won awards in major competitions at the international, regional, and local levels.

The main focus of the club is on skill development. Beginner projects and instruction are available to those who want to try their carving skills. The club also schedules carving programs of various lengths (one day to one week) taught by skilled club members or outside, nationally recognized, experts.

The club’s normal meeting venue is at the S 5th Avenue Methodist Church in Wilmington, NC, 9 am to noon on Thursdays. Since the COVID pandemic, meetings are held primarily on Zoom. Zoom meetings are open to all. If weather is conducive, some meetings have been held outdoors at one of the open-air pavilions in Longleaf Park in Wilmington.
