The aim of the Spoon Carving Taster Day is to provide an introduction to the craft of spoon carving. While no prior experience is required, the Spoon Carving Taster Day could be a follow-on course to the Knife Skills & Whittling Course or as a means to discover whether you want to take up spoon carving before doing a two-day course.
During the course students are first introduced to the tools used; an axe, carving knife and hook knife and are taught how to use each safely and efficiently. Students then make a simple spoon using basic techniques. During the day wood selection is discussed and the day ends with a session on sharpening the tools used. If time permits, simple decoration is also covered.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
