Spoon carving in Manchester with Steve Tomlin


About the Course

Carving spoons from fresh wood is a fantastic hobby that has become hugely popular recently.
Turning a tree into your own practical and unique wooden spoons using an axe and special carving knives is inspiring, engaging and addictive! It's the perfect way to start working with wood.

We will work together carving from a log to a cooking spoon. You'll take home a practical and beautiful utensil to use in your kitchen every day as well as fantastic memories.

I have been carving and teaching for over 10 years and am an internationally recognised expert. No experience is needed, you'll learn step-by-step in a safe and fun atmosphere. A spoon carving kit including an axe and two knives will be available to purchase during the course.

Our venue is just 2mins from the centre of Chorlton-cum-Hardy, South Manchester and within easy walking distance from Metro and bus routes.

I loved the course. It was a relaxing day, but I picked up loads of useful information. I'm now comfortable with safe axe and knife techniques. We went from a block of wood to a useful spoon in a matter of hours. I can't wait to practise my news skills.
