FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — A newly opened studio and design center in Fayetteville welcomed the community to its first event on Friday.

The center opened in January, and it is a part of the School of Art at the University of Arkansas. Friday, it opened its doors to the public for a free chainsaw carving demonstration along with a designer talk and workshop.

“I think it’s a unique way of carving. You know, not a lot of people use a chainsaw as a carving tool. So we’re hoping that this is something students think about and maybe use in the future,” said visiting sculptor Robyn Herron.
