Spoon carving weekend at Greenwood Days

X

Description

This course is held over two days and is for those wanting more time to really learn the skills involved in greenwood spoon carving. You’ll have plenty of time to practise each of the techniques and gain a deeper understanding of working with the tools and timber. This will allow you to carve more easily and efficiently and give you the confidence to continue carving at home. You’ll take home a range of finished items from simple butter knives to more complicated spoons and have chance to cover extra topics such as spoon design, the best oils for wooden spoons and how to sharpen your tools. Greenwood Days have been running woodland craft courses since 1998. The course centre is set in a beautiful 90 acre wood in the National Forest on the Leicestershire/Derbyshire border.  Our tutors are all highly skilled professional craft workers and teachers who share our passion for preserving, promoting and passing on these crafts and techniques. Come and enjoy the beauty of the woodland, be inspired, be creative, learn a new craft.
