About the Course

The ancient art of spoon carving has recently undergone a big revival. This course is a great way to get started on this craft. You will learn about what types of wood are suitable and how to safely use an axe, knife and a "crook knife" (the curved one). Through the course of the day you will make at least one spoon from a green log!
Beginners are welcome, as well as those who have tried their hand at it before and wishes to refine their technique.
This day is a great introduction to a craft which is relaxing and therapeutic, and as a bonus produces unique stylish low impact gifts or useful spoons for the home (yes the can be used!). Learners should go away with the skills and confidence to start carving at home.
We usually have some of the tools available for sale.
