Since Walter Keller started the first carving camp at Falcon Lake in 2008 there have been 52 graduates. In 2013 the camp was invited to relocate to the Sandilands Forest Discovery Centre near Hadashville, Manitoba.
I remember seeing my first chainsaw carving and thinking "I want to do that some day". I photographed carvings in my travels and researched the topic on the internet but found that I still had no idea where to start. In 2007 I was fortunate to be able to attend a three day workshop given by a professional carver. I now assist with the camp and promote the art in our area and I enjoy helping others get started in this great "art form". Russ Kubara aka "ROOSTER"
