Over the three days spectators will be captivated by the spectacle of artistry and the visual display of carvers wielding their chainsaws turning plain logs into amazing works of art.

John Connellan from SkyHigh Mt Dandenong said "We are delighted to be hosting this event." I have seen these carvers at work when travelling overseas and some of the sculptures they produce out of a log of wood are truly amazing."

If you would like to view some chainsaw sculptures, visit Skyhigh Mount Dandenong on the weekend of 23 to 25 May.
