Fish Aquarium Project

The Great Lakes Wood Carvers have an Open Carve Night on Tuesday evenings at the Donna Smallwood Activities Center. They bring whatever project they are working on, share techniques and stories, and laugh a lot for a couple of hours each week. This is a laid back friendly group, and they welcome visitors. 

In May they offered a free, four week afternoon beginners workshop, at the Smallwood Center to encourage others to learn the basics of carving. The workshop project was a carved fish. The workshop was well received by the participants. It prompted the group to start a Fish Aquarium group project. 

Seven excited group members participated in the project. One house bound member and the estate of Ed Hrncir contributed, Gerry Hoeltge (natural fish), Bonnie Janelle (staging fish), Jane Zampedro (painter & carver), Laurie Sak (Teacher & Master Carver), Rick Krusinski (carver), Rob Horn (aquarium design), Stan Starry (fishing decoy) and Dave Worsencroft (modern style). An excellent outcome to a team effort. Look for this carved wood aquatic life project displayed at the Donna Smallwood Center in the display case in the center aisle. 

If you are interested in learning more about wood carving stop in at the Smallwood Center on a Tuesday evening around 6:30 and meet the Great Lakes Wood Carvers.
