About par-avion

I am a furniture designer in Norfolk with a background in architecture. I got into spoon carving by accident when I had to display some ceramic dishes that all had a small chip on the rim. I decided to make some spoons and use the chip as a depression to hold them. The spoons were a hit and after years of practice, I now want others to experience the joy of spoon carving that I get to practice nearly every day.

Superb introduction to this craft, the instructor was an excellentcommunicator who quickly understood my skills and needs. I came away with a hunger to do much more and develop my skills further. I would strongly recommend this course as an introduction to this craft.

Lovely course and a really helpful teacher - thanks! The session was chilled and calm with lots of chances to chat and be sociable and moments of quiet to focus on your spoon! I've since picked up my own set of tools and started some carving at home. I'd recommend.
