We are a branch of the Gulf Coast Carvers Guild, a non-profit association organized in 1978 to promote woodcarving as an art. GCCG is located in Sarasota Fl. When I moved from Sarasota to Tampa in 2005 I could not located a carving club in Tampa. In March 2008, Jerry Burke became interested in carving and attended a couple of meetings with me in Sarasota and got hooked on whittling. Tim Wiley is a Wood Turner I meet while trying to get interest in a Tampa Carving Club. The Directors of GCCG agreeded to allow me to form a "branch" of the guild using their By-Laws.
With Jerry and Tim's help we found the Carrollwood Culture Center which was about to open. Paul Berg, Director of the center agreed to give us a room to begin our club. We started March 17 with 3 member and now have 6. We carve every Monday evening, 7 pm to 9 pm.
Thanks for interest
