The California Carvers Guild (CCG) is a statewide organization of woodcarvers. It has approximately 400 members and 51 active chapters, organized into a Southern District and a Northern District. To find a chapter near you, use the state map or browse through the Chapter List.

The benefits of CCG membership include fellowship with other woodcarvers, the opportunity of participating in the many carving shows and training opportunities, and receiving the CCG monthly publication, The Log. If you are a competetive carver, you'll find that the CCG shows are an excellent opportunity for competition; check out our Judging Program.

Of course, you can belong to the CCG as a Member at Large. You'll miss out on the benefits of belonging to a specific chapter, but still get The Log and be able to participate in shows and competitions.

OK, so how do I join?
