These gnomes, carved by guild members, are located outside the Visitor’s Center in downtown Frankenmuth.

The Eagle’s Nest is located in Heritage Park in Frankenmuth, Michigan. A group of 10 to 20 members get together at each session to carve on individual projects and to exchange ideas and help each other with carving problems.

Carving sessions are on Wednesday and Thursday mornings from

9 - 12 and on Wednesday evening from 6 - 9.

These informal sessions give the membership the opportunity to learn from the more experienced carvers working on their individual projects. One of our main objectives is to recruit new carvers and introduce them to the art of woodcarving.

The Guild members demonstrate woodcarving at community functions such at various fairs and festivals. Members attend other carving club shows to show their own personal collections of carvings throughout the year. Some members also demonstrate and teach at local schools, seniors centers and other organizations.

Our annual wood carver’s show is held each October.

Social functions include an annual summer picnic and a Christmas party December of each year. Membership meetings also provide social interaction and getting acquainted.

Established in 1975, we have over 75 members and continue growing.

If you are interested in joining the Guild, dues are $30.00 per year. This also entitles you our monthly newsletter and a membership card. If you have an interest in wood carving, please come visit us and we’ll get you started.
