I am Steve at Northern Wood Monkey and I have been working both in and with wood for the past 10 years. From managing local woodlands I gained a love of learning and developing the crafts that come from them. Carving and turning took hold with me, and I love sharing what I have learned with others.
" The spoon carving course was fantastic and very informative on all aspects of the subject. Steve was very patient and explained his art very eloquently, often digressing onto other subjects to emphasise a point (blade sharpening, grit sizes, stropping, makes of tools etc) he even sent us links to all the items mentioned in our conversations. Price is also very reasonable. Steve is a true Gentleman and a fantastic teacher.

" Thanks Nigel. It was great to meet you both and to carve together. I hope it is the beginning of lots more creativity for you."
