Sailfest attendee are encouraged to watch multiple woodcarvers create their unique and one-of-a-kind wood carved sculptures with hand tools, paint brushes and electric wood carving tools. Their finished works will be available for sale either in the Gallery or on the tables under the tent. In addition to the woodcarvers, this year we have invited at least four woodturners who will be performing their magic on their turning lathes. It is a fascinating sight to see what a skilled woodturner can create from a square block of wood and in a relatively short period of time.
The woodturners are all members of the Central New England Woodturners Association, and the woodcarvers are from the Mystic Woodcarvers and the New England Woodcarvers Association.
It promises to be a very exciting day for both sets of artists as there will be a competition for best in show as judged by a select group of admirers of the artistry of wood art.
