About the Course
This course is a two day exploration of the carved wooden eating spoon. A well-carved wooden eating spoon can be a thing of joy to use, but there is a lot to it. JoJo will be teaching you all her tricks and techniques, developed over years of carving, to create the perfect eating spoon.
This course is for people who already know how to carve a spoon, and are now looking to push themselves to the next level.
JoJo is a second generation, world renowned spoon carver. Her teaching focusses heavily on technique. She aims to show people that good technique will always win out over strength.
JoJo also likes to focus on personal development. She teaches that we are all at different stages of our journey. Everyone has something different to learn. JoJo's teaching helps people through their own personal challenges and take them on to the next stage of their development.
The location for this workshop is at the Pathcarvers workshop in Birmingham, 2 minutes walk from the nearest train station.

A hugely enjoyable and very informative weekend. Excellent tuition, loads of hints and tips about how to carve then really detailed run-throughs of making spoons. I produced a spoon which was infinitely better than any I'd made before.
Jojo was encouraging, supportive and enthusiastic throughout and particularly helpful when things went wrong. It was a really sociable event, being with a group of like-minded people.
I fully recommend this course to anyone with an interest in woodcarving and who wants to increase their skills.

This was a thorough and well paced course led by someone who knows so much intuitively as well as technically about wood and spoon carving.
I left feeling I had been given grounded and tested techniques which if I can adopt will mean my spoon making will produce successful spoons…looking good and functioning for purpose.
I am hoping it means if I continue to make more and more spoons I will progress and begin to develop my style based on these techniques.
