About the Course

PLEASE VISIT THE WEBSITE USING THE LINK ABOVE TO CHECK ON COURSE DATES AND AVAILABILITY

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.

The courses are run in the village of Great Bourton in north Oxfordshire about 5 miles from Banbury and the M40. Located on the edge of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within easy reach of Oxford and the historic towns of Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon.

The course could therefore be part of a holiday break and the area provides plenty of opportunities for non-participating partners.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
