The Great White North Lodge is a collaborative project that will feature your caricatures and carvings in various poses and activities as they depict everyday life at the Lodge nestled somewhere in the Great Northern wilderness that many of us can call home.  This fictitious Lodge is home to just about anything that one can imagine finding while spending time away from civilization in Northern Canada. The display will be a shell showing part of the interior of the lodge as well as part of the beautiful lake nestled beside it. It will be up to the participants to add their carvings to bring this display to life. Hopefully many of you will be inspired to "Join the Lodge"!  For more information, click here

Prairie Canada is pleased to offer workshops, featuring talented Manitoba instructors, offering workshops for every carver from beginners to advanced.
