Wood carvers

The Bella Vista Woodcarvers Club is a group of local artisans who meet regularly to share works of art, exchange woodworking experiences and stay in touch with members. Due to covid issues, the temporary hangout is at the Bella Vista Assembly of God Church Gymnasium, located at 1771 Forest Hills Blvd., at 1 p.m. every Thursday.

On the third Thursday of each month there is a class on one aspect of carving, wood burning, finishing, or some other interesting topic. Classes are a great way to practice techniques, learn new ways to achieve your goal, and discover your own style.

The aim of the club is to promote the general fields of sculpture, woodcut and woodcarving, and to promote a greater appreciation of wood in artistic expression. The club is dedicated to giving back to the community through activities that teach children and adults the art of sculpture. Visitors are always welcome.
