Learn to carve wooden spoons, beginners and improvers.

I loved this course and came away with my first spoon and some very clearly taught skills to continue. Highly recommended and a delightful way to spend a day.

A really enjoyable day. Dave is an excellent teacher - thorough and encouraging, he went through how to use the axe and knife safely. We were not rushed at all but at the end of the day all had a spreader and spoon (in various stages of completion) to take home. I would strongly recommend this course.

Good course, learning various techniques of knife use. Very knowledgeable and experienced tutor. We all made a butter-knife and then a scoopy statula thingy which gets much use in the kitchen.

I attended Dave's spoon carving course at the wonderful surrounds of Days Cottage. The course was superb, perfectly balanced for the skills of the group yet allowing everyone the chance to work at their own pace. Dave's manner of teaching is highly informative and yet presented in a relaxed manner that encourages you to ask questions and engage with the group. I highly recommend Dave's courses, just beware, you'll be eying every tree as a potential spoon!

I thoroughly enjoyed my day and felt a great sense of achievement. Dave is a patient and knowledgeable teacher who gently offers advice. I will be booking up for another course.

Really enjoyed the course - Dave creates a friendly positive atmosphere. The day was well planned, covered all aspects and has set me off as a keen independent amateur spoon carver.

Dave's spoon carving course is excellent. I was shown safe working practices with the axe for roughing out a blank, and with the knife for finishing. I would highly recommend the course to anyone wanting to learn the art of spoon carving.

I'd done a bit of spoon carving before, but I thoroughly enjoyed using the axe to make the first stages this time. It gave me confidence to make kindling this summer! And I made the biggest spoon ever!
