About the Course
This is a 3-hour long beginner's wooden spoon carving course based at my Norwich workshop (11-2pm). You will learn the basic skills required to make your own spoon from reclaimed or green wood.
You will be able to take home your creation at the end of the course and will be given sandpaper and tips on caring for your item (e.g. applying waxes and finishes for a long-lasting product).
I will provide spoon blanks from an assortment of woods for you to choose from, including reclaimed hardwoods and locally harvested green timbers. All tools will be provided.
Halfway through the course, I will provide soup, tea and coffee to sustain us through the second half of the session.
Due to the nature of working with axes, knives and other sharp tools, all students must be 18+ (or 16+ with an accompanying adult).
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
All tools will be provided for the students to use on the day. I will provide a selection of axes, carving knives, gouges, rasps and hand saws to trial and will give advice on purchasing your own tools after the course if you choose to invest further.
All students will take home their completed (or in-progress) spoon, along with some sandpaper for finishing and a small pot of finishing wax if desired.
A soup lunch and coffees, teas & biscuits will be provided on the day.
Superb introduction to this craft, the instructor was an excellentcommunicator who quickly understood my skills and needs. I came away with a hunger to do much more and develop my skills further. I would strongly recommend this course as an introduction to this craft.
