Spoon Carving Experience

In-person
Cyra Carley - - #38648

I'd highly recommend the one-day spoon carving day - such as enjoyable, creative, mindful day in a beautiful and peaceful setting. Adrian was an excellent teacher, and Sarah made a delicious lunch that we had round the camp fire. A great day, and I was delighted to come away with an actual spoon I'd made out of a block of wood!

If ever you thought, I'd like to make something for the kitchen, then this is the course for you. Master craftsman Adrian guided us through taking a piece of wood and made it into something resembling a wooden spoon, a great day of learning a new skill.


Beginner Basket Weaving Experience day - Surrey Hills (Course inactive)

In-person
Sarah Louise - - #39081

My husband and I had an amazing day making baskets. Ellie was a great teacher and having never done it before it was very satisfying seeing my willow weaving become a basket :-)
The open air workshop, views of the fields, copse, Lunch and tea by the open fire and bird song really made it a unique experience. A great gift & I'm looking forward to trying other crafts there too.

Response from Joy Farms - Crafting, Woodcarving and Art courses in The Surrey Hills:

Thanks Sarah Louise, glad you had a great time. Look forward to seeing you on another course soon.

A lovely relaxing way to spend 1/2 day, and easier to do than I expected. George is a great teacher and I’d thoroughly recommend trying this workshop. The shave horse was easy to use and satisfying!
The indoor/outdoor craft workshop next to the camp/open fire 🔥 was a lovely setting.
