Introduction to spoon carving with Lee John Phillips at Stwido 3



Join Lee for a day long introduction to spoon carving. While you learn the fundamentals of the craft you will make your own cooking spoon based on a design Lee has developed over the past several years. The skills you learn on the day will give you the confidence to continue on with your carving journey in your own time. You will learn about: - Carving tools - Health and safety - Safe cutting techniques - Wood selection and properties - Grain direction and orientation - Types of utensils - Designing a spoon - Decorating and finishing The spoon you will make is a good kitchen ‘all rounder’, your first spoon will serve you well for many years and will hopefully be the start of your carving career. Lee will also introduce you to the intricacies of carving an eating spoon, camping spoon and his internationally recognised pocket spoons.
