Maker's bio

Father and Daughter team, Nick and Sophie started spoon carving to help improve their wellbeing and mental health, however, it’s become more than just a pass time, it’s become an obsession! We prefer to carve spoons in our back yard, but in the rain and snow, we retreat indoors. Our wood chippings have spread around the whole house! We started our own business in 2018, The Gosman Spoon Co, and now sell our spoons online and offer beginner’s spoon carving courses.

Nathan reviewed: Beginners spoon carving

"I had no expectations or indeed much experience with using an axe (other than to occasionally split logs), so I was amazed that I could take a log and make a spoon from it. Nick was a great teacher, full of advice and useful information. I am waiting for the right tools to do justice to my learning but feel inspired and much more confident working wood both with a knife and axe! Thanks"

Gosman Spoon Co. responded:

" Thank you Nathan! We’re so glad you enjoyed your day and the experience. Please just contact me if you have any questions about tools."

Kathleen Kaluza reviewed: Beginner’s bowl carving

"We attended the course as a family (all adults) and everyone found it thoroughly enjoyable and engrossing. We were taught about tools and how to use them as well as woods and ways to treat/carve them. There were certainly challenges as there were 4 of us and there is a lot to learn, but Nick was a rigorous and attentive teacher (as well as very sociable) and it is to his credit that we all came away with a sense of achievement as well as bowls and spoons we were pleased with. It was an excellent weekend and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to try something new and immersive."

Gosman Spoon Co. responded:

" Thank you so much Kathleen! You were all model students. Very best wishes Nick & Debbie "

Abigail reviewed: Beginners spoon carving

"Nick was such a wonderful host and craftsman, we had such an enjoyable day. We came as a surprise gift for my step dads 70th birthday and we had so much fun and I didn’t realise I would be any good with an axe! No prior experience needed and a really wonderful present. Thank you "

Gosman Spoon Co. responded:

" Thank you! It was a pleasure to meet you both."

Mark kirk reviewed: Advanced spoon carving techniques

"This was a great time advancing skills in spoon carving. Nick was really knowledgeable and great at explaining what is needed to create a spoon. It was a relaxing and informative course with so much learnt from the time spent. In my opinion Nick is under pricing himself as I’ve seen similar courses for a lot more and this man knows his stuff and is patient and friendly in his teaching approach. I would definitely use the service provided by Nick in the future and highly recommend anybody who really appreciates the benefits of green wood working to sign up for some of his precious knowledge. It was a long drive from Leicester for me but so worth it. Thanks Nick and Debbie who even supplied hot beverages which unfortunately didn’t get tested due to enjoying the lesson. "

" Thank you so much Mark for your kind review. It was a pleasure to meet you."
