Spoon Carving Taster Session 30th June
Do you fancy trying your hand at Spoon Carving?
Come along and learn safe knife skills in a comfortable environment and make your own spoon. No previous woodworking experience is necessary, though those with knowledge of working with wood will still find fresh challenges in the hand carved spoon.
The course will run between 1pm and 4pm.
The joy of spoon carving is that we don't need expensive tools, workshops and work benches. Just our hands and a few simple tools. You will develop skills to take away with you to be able to carve at home, sat outside on warm summers evenings or in front of the fire on those chilly winter nights.
I will concentrate on giving you a knowledge of safe grips and cutting techniques with both a straight and bent (hook) knife which are the two that we use to make the spoon.
We will begin from a rough spoon blank that I have prepared with the axe beforehand and use straight and hook knives to carve your spoon.
You will end the day with a spoon of your own and an overwhelming desire to carve more spoons - believe me it is addictive.
I will supply all the tools you need and a selection of wood to work with. I can give you information about where to go to buy good tools of your own if you want to take this further.
Refreshments will be available throughout the afternoon.
The venue is The Creative Artist Studio, Vallum Farm, Military Rd, East Wallhouses, Newcastle upon Tyne NE18 0LL
