Become part of a great carving organization!

Blackhawk Woodcarvers is an organization that supports the preservation and
 encourages the continuing growth of the art of carving by promoting classes and
 fellowship with other carvers.

The Blackhawk Woodcarvers was founded in 1993 to bring local and area carvers together. They formed a group that could trade tips, share their experiences, and just whittle and talk about carving. Today, the Blackhawk Woodcarvers have a membership of men and women whose skills cover the entire spectrum of the craft, from chip, characters, abstract and relief carving. The club is open to all carvers, at all skill levels, including those with no carving experience at all. Equipment can be as simple as a pocketknife to the more sophisticated power tools. The goal of the Blackhawk Woodcarvers is to preserve and encourage continued growth in the art and craft of carving. Club activities include seminars, workshops and “hands- on” carving every Wednesday at 10:00 am until 12:00 pm.

We will meet at Ken-Rock Community Center, 625 Adams Street, Wednesday mornings at 10:00am until 12:00pm.

 Our mailing address is P. O. Box 8285 Rockford, IL 61126. 

 At our meetings, carvers often bring in work they have finished.   We all get  to see and appreciate their results.  Friends and spouses of carvers are especially welcome to visit and meet carvers.
