You’re invited! Join us for one of our monthly meetings, open carves or monthly Zoom meetings:


Monthly Meetings

When: Third Tuesday each month 6:00pm

Where: Community Methodist Church, 130 Tennyson Drive, Lancaster

Our Monthly Meetings consist of an hour of carving with friends, tutorials, short classes or how-to’s followed at 7:00pm by a short business meeting that includes a “Show and Tell” to share our latest creations with the club. And of course, little snacks and drinks are typically provided.


Open Carves

When: First Thursday each month 9:00 – 11:00am and 6:00 – 8:00pm.

Where: Community Methodist Church, 130 Tennyson Drive, Lancaster

Our Open Carves are ad hoc opportunities for our members to get together, share some laughs, and trade carving insights. Woodcarving is a VERY social activity! We have two sessions each month – one for morning people, and another for the after-work crowd. The morning Open Carve usually begins with breakfast at the Bridgeport Family Restaurant  at 8:00am, before heading to the Church to carve.

Monthly Zoom Meetings

When: First Tuesday each month 7:00pm (eastern time)

Zoom meeting Number: 417 966 8402

Our monthly Zoom meetings began in response to the lockdowns everyone experienced during the COVID pandemic - to provide our members an opportunity to connect, chat and exchange ideas about our passion: woodcarving. Today, carvers from all over the U.S. and even Canada often join us for some hearty discussion and fellowship. Our Zoom meetings now occur eight months of the year, as we take off for four months over the Summer.

You’re welcome to visit us anytime! No matter your skill level – novice to expert - you’ll find a friendly, supportive environment in which to explore your woodcarving with the Lancaster County Woodcarvers Club. We hope to see you soon!
