About the Course

This regular class in spoon carving, introduces the art of carving with an axe, knife and crook knife.
By carving a spoon, which is by nature a functional object and one we are all familiar with and helps us remove the idea that this may be a daunting task. Instead this introduction allows us to become familiar with with the tools, and gain confidence in beginning to build a relationship with small scale carving.

We use green wood, which is wood that is freshly cut with a high moisture content, this is a beautiful way to carve wood. You are supported through the whole process,and encouraged to explore carving in your own way and at your own pace. This is an exercise in slowing down and settling your attention.

I have been trained as a sculptor and have been carving wood for over 30 years, I am passionate about this subject and I love to share this with others.

I am situated within a 7 acre site of other crafts people, designers, artists studios and workshops all situated next to the river Thames. We have three cafes in walking distance and plenty of free parking.

If I have missed out anything please drop me a line and ask me a question.
Hope to meet you soon.
