About the Course

A new course at Broadrake for 2018!

Tutor Steve Tomlin teaches spoon carving, and other green woodworking skills as well as being the busiest scything instructor in the North of England!

This is a one-day introduction to the craft where 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 new skills and fantastic memories.

We will be working at small chopping blocks with axes, and then with special carving knives. Please wear layers of old warm clothing as we may be working outside if dry and warm enough.

We have planted young native trees on our site and ultimately, when they are big enough, will be coppicing them in order to provide fresh materials for green woodworking. Spoon Carving is a great starting point to this traditional, sustainable craft.

Max 6 places
