Getting Back to Sparks & Nature!
We are delighted to be welcoming back the Canadian Stone Carvers for their 2022 Festival!
This year's theme is 'Getting Back to Nature' celebrating the arrival of summer and the Flora and Fauna of Canada.
"On the 24th, 25th and 26th of June 2022, stone carvers from Canada and beyond will congregate at the famous Sparks Street outdoor Mall in Ottawa Ontario to display their skills and creativity. Using hand tools only, participants will have 18 hours over three days to complete their pieces. The public is invited to enjoy the sights and sounds of this traditional work site and to engage with the carvers. Following the carving, on the afternoon of Sunday June 26th at 2:00pm, all pieces will be auctioned to the public, with proceeds being donated to Ottawa Innercity Ministries.
The Canadian Stone Carving Festival is not a competition and is open to carvers of all levels of experience from beginner to professional. This event was created to promote craft fellowship amongst carvers, to build public awareness about the trade and to raise money for charity."
The 12th annual Canadian Stone Carving Festival online auction of the completed works raised over $11,000.00 for Ottawa Innercity Ministries in 2021.
