Our Members are many and various; some are practically beginners and others have been carving for most of their lives. The styles and methods are just as varied, and we are always delighted with this variety which means that each individual is important for their contribution, whether it be flair, experience, youth, exuberance or meticulous workmanship.
If you are not sure if you want to join please come along to one of our carving sessions, see what we are carving and talk to us. Please contact the Secretary if you wish to come along as you will need a code to get into the PGS.
Membership is open to both sexes and all ages. (Note those under 18 must be accompanied at all times during Guild activities by an adult). We currently have over 25% female carvers.
