The Flickertail Woodcarvers Club of Bismarck-Mandan is offering its 48th annual Fall Woodcarving Show on Saturday and Sunday. Highlights include the displays and demonstrations of woodcarving from locals as well as the talent and skill of other carvers in the United States and Canada.
Josh Guge, a world-known wildlife carver, is instructing a several day class on the environmental aspects of carving. He will be showing how to create such details as the feet and branches for a bird and the reeds and river bottom for a fish. It’s the type of proficiency needed by model railroaders or anyone building a diorama. Many of his works will be on display at the show.
In addition, club member Vince Bitz will teach a weekend class on carving a horse’s head. Deb Emerson will instruct people in designing a weaving using a small loom on Saturday, and Gynnel Torgeson will craft fabric flowers on Sunday.
About 30 people exhibit their work at the Bismarck Public Schools Career Academy on Bismarck State College Campus.
The two-day Flickertail Woodcarvers Show is free and open to everyone from 12:15 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
