Suncoast Woodcrafters Guild April Program and Meeting

The April meeting’s program will be a lot of fun, as members are being asked to tell everyone why their selected tool is special, such as it’s tool they frequently use, one that can always be trusted for accuracy, one that is comfortable to use, or one that you treasure because you received it as a gift. Alternatively, members can bring a tool they know nothing about or is a highly collectable tool.

Opportunity: Neighbourhood Small Grants

Deadline April 18th. Ideas that Connect Neighbours. The Neighbourhood Small Grants (NSG) program helps residents of any age, experience, or background take part in building community. We offer a small grant of up to $500 for you to bring your community project to life. With a Neighbourhood Small Grant, you join our network of thousands of project leaders who have taken steps to better their neighbourhoods—just like you.
Why are we doing this? Because magic happens when neighbours connect. It forms friendships, makes our communities safer and more vibrant. We have helped make communities in British Columbia stronger, safer, and more welcoming since 1999. Neighbourhood Small Grants (NSG) provides grants of up to $500 for projects that connect people socially or involve sharing skills or talents with each other.

DAVID EVANSON | Meet the Artist

Currently exhibiting New Life from Old Wood (sculpture).

David Evanson is a local artist who has been carving for 15 years. Recently, he has been transitioning to larger scale and more abstract carvings. He draws sustenance, nourishment, and resilience from the natural world, and that connection continues as he works with some of the oldest wood in this country.

Art Exhibition: DAVID EVANSON | New Life from Old Wood

David Evanson rescues old growth trees abandoned on our local beaches and reveals their unique inner beauty. Abstract free form carvings from old growth cedar, alder, and douglas fir encourage us to examine the consumption of our old growth forests in our current industrial logging model. This exhibition serves as a reminder of the importance of the natural world, and our too-often tenuous connection to its vital nourishment.
