This new Chainsaw Carving event in the North of North Ayrshire is now entering it’s 2nd year and will take place in the Manse Field Just off Glebe Road Beith (which can be seen on the accompanying map).
Set up will be on the Friday evening when most of the carvers arrive.
Public admittance using the Glebe Road entrance or beside the pedestrian gate at the Bowling Club Boghead will be from 10.00 till finish at around 5pm.
When entering the field you will have your hand stamped, the children will receive wrist bands. This will allow you to come and go into the field as many times as you want. This avoids several entrance fees over the course of the day.
Our very first event in 2018 proved to be a huge success and everyone involved wants it to continue for the future .
All the carvings produced will be for sale in the auction at the end of the day, If any visitors would like to purchase one of the main or quick carvings, it is recommended that sufficient cash is available as the carvers have no facility of taking cash by card. There are several cash machines in the town.
The quick carving will take place after the main event, these items will also be for sale.
All profits will benefit local Community and projects and help us progress for the future.
Food and soft drinks will be available all day from various vendors on the field.
2019 sees the return of the now established Chainsaw Carving event in the Garnock Valley on Sept 7th. This fun and creative demonstration will provide an opportunity for everyone to watch a jaw dropping spectator event, and also to enjoy community activities, family games and enjoy some of the locally sourced produce and food stalls.
Currently there are 10 international and award winning chainsaw carvers confirmed to take part in the Second Garnock Valley Carves Carving event, showcasing a spectacular piece of performance art demonstrating astonishing skill and talent from across the globe using mainly chainsaws.
Besides the event itself, we are aiming for a wide variety of interactive stalls and attractions for all ages to enjoy and many opportunities to feel inspired and learn some new skills. A cross section of community groups from the Garnock Valley will have activities and stalls for participants to interact with as well as face painting, a children’s tent, wood carving workshops, outdoors woodland crafts and games,
If you would like a stall, please get in touch soon.
We are set to run the event in successive years, helping us make a real, sustainable impact to our local area.
