Club members meet every Thursday from 1:00-4:00 PM at the Woodcraft store for open, group carving. This weekly carving event is open to all. Carvers work on projects of their choosing and with so much talent in the room it is a good place to ask advice. Thursday Workshop/Programs are held on the first Thursday of each month with club business being addressed from 6:00- 6:30. Projects start as soon as the business meeting ends. It’s highly recommended that you attend the Thursday workshop/program if you are planning on signing up for a Saturday workshop. Most Thursday workshop/programs will coincide with the monthly Saturday workshop, offering members a jump start on their project. During most Thursday workshops, members will receive a free carving blank.Saturday Workshops are held on the third Saturday of each month from 9:00AM to 3:00PM at Woodcraft. There is usually a minimal cost associated with the workshop. Workshops are usually provided by club members who give step by step instructions. Projects vary each month. Register first please before showing up. Limited space in some workshops.Membership InformationDownload JRWC Membership ApplicationFor more information on joining JRWC, send an email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Inclement Weather Policy
The inclement weather policy is a recommendation of the JRWC Board. If Henrico County schools are closed, there will be no James River Woodcarvers activities held. Thursday carving will resume the following week, weather permitting. If a Thursday night meeting is canceled, any scheduled business will be discussed at the next month's meeting and any planned projects will be rescheduled. If we miss a Saturday workshop, we will try and schedule a makeup. The safety and wellbeing of our club members comes first and those that survive bad weather live to carve another day.Note: Weather conditions may vary from one county to another. You should use your own discretion based on the weather conditions in your area. The decision to carve on Thursday afternoon at Woodcraft of Richmond is really up to each individual and whether they feel confident in arriving there safely.
