Chainsaw carvers rev their tools at Transformation on the Shore

One of the louder art forms was on full display as carving got underway at Campbell River’s 25th annual Transformation on the Shore on Wednesday, June 22.

Frank James Park played host to the chainsaw wielding sculptors, who will be hard at work creating their wooden art until Sunday, June 26.

Six carvers will be creating wooden benches, which will be the backdrop for many an Instagram post for years to come.

There is no competition this year, with each carver earning a stipend instead.
