Welcome to the Guild’s web site and over 40 years of woodcarving.
The Solent Guild of Woodcarvers & Sculptors was founded in May 1978 by the late James Bell in conjunction with three others – Vic Flower, Bill Judge and Stan Callan. At a meeting in Cosham on 18th May, which was attended by twenty people, the Guild was officially inaugurated. A couple of Founder Members, i.e. those who joined during the first couple of years, are still Members of the Guild.

We are a voluntarily run Guild of people, of both sexes and all ages, interested in all aspects of carving, whittling and sculpting and other wood related activities. We have many members from all over the Solent area, centred on Portsmouth in Central Southern England.
