Carving a niche

October 13, 2011

To you or me, a block of wood is a block of wood — but to one of the Mustang Draw Woodcarver’s Club members, it’s a work of art waiting to happen.
The club will hold its annual Show and Sale beginning Monday at Dora Roberts Community Center. There, you can purchase almost any kind of artwork done in wood. And, if you have the hankering, you can learn a thing or two about the craft yourself.
As part of the annual exhibition, club members will hold classes from Monday to Thursday on various forms of woodcarving, ranging from beginner’s work to more advanced art.
