The Lake of the Ozarks Woodcarvers Club began in the early 1980s with just a few woodcarvers. It was formalized in 1984 and has currently grown to over 95 members. The club contains carvers of all ages, and beginners to professional carvers. Several of the carvers are instructors and have won awards for their work. Woodcarvers are always willing to teach or help anyone interested in pursuing this art form. The club offers monthly meetings and classes and hosts several seminars annually to members and non-members.
