Welcome to the Craft-T-Carvers
DOWNLOAD BROCHURE / MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION
Craft-T-Carvers (CTC) is chartered as an RV chapter of the
California Carvers' Guild.
The CTC membership is mainly concentrated in southern California,
although we have some members in northern California and in other
CTC holds a "campout" once a month except in July and
August. Some of the campouts coincide with California Carvers'
Guild carving shows, and the campouts tend to be in the same
places each year (typically at an RV park with a clubhouse).
The campouts officially begin on Thursday and campers usually
leave Sunday morning.
Activities: Carving (usually a group "
Carve-Along" with everyone carving from a provided blank)
and crafts are done during the day. Each day usually winds up
with a group "Attitude Adjustment" before the campers
retire to their rigs for supper. Saturday morning begins with
a group breakfast followed by a Board of Directors meeting and
then an open business meeting. The Saturday evening
"Attitude Adjustment" usually features a display of
the "Carve-Along" carvings and the presentation of
"bragging rights" for the best three or four carvings.
Saturday concludes with a pot-luck dinner.
Carve-Along project: The winning carvers and their carvings.
Rodney Cole gives a seminar on carving an Indian head.
Classes: At times, carvers volunteer to give a class in
their specialty. The carve-alongs are also a great learning
experience. For the non-carvers, craft classes of various kinds
are offered depending on the interest shown. Some past craft
activities have included cloth flowers, baskets, holiday items,
decorated sweatshirts, and calligraphy.
Glove dolls: one of the craft projects.
Hosts: Each member family is expected to take a turn at
hosting one campout each year, jointly with two or three other
families. The hosts are responsible for planning and managing
the food and activities for the campout, parking the rigs, and
cleaning up the campsite.
