Woodcarving enthusiasts congregate in Harmony

Posted in Features

HARMONY - More than 60 woodcarvers from eight states were in Harmony this past week participating in the first annual Southeast Minnesota Woodcarvers Workshop. Sponsored by Slims Woodshed, the workshop featured ten teachers specializing in all aspects of woodcarving, ranging from marquetry to bird carving and from basketweaving to painting Ukrainian Easter Eggs.

The workshop was organized by Stan Slim Maroushek with a little help from his Harmony friends, which included church and civic groups serving meals.

When we learned that Audobon, Iowa was no longer going to have their carving workshop, we decided to host it in Harmony, Slim said. He sees it being an annual event.

Carvers ranged in age from 8 to 90 with skill levels starting at beginner and ranging to intermediate. Most classes were taught in the warehouse barn, like the Mountain Man carving class taught by Bob Lawrence of Fargo, North Dakota. The Buffalo head sculpture class taught by Dan Ford of Audobon, Iowa was held in a large tent on the lawn, while the Ukrainian Easter Egg class taught by Beulah Shindelar of Spillville, Iowa was held in the classroom.

The workshop started on Sunday, June 5, with registration, classes and a supper/dance at Wheelers Bar & Grill. It concluded on Wednesday, June 8.
