Spoon Carving Taster Session Saturday 3rd february 2024
Come along and learn safe knife skills in a comfortable environment and make your own wooden 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.
We begin with a ready cut spoon 'blank' that you will turn into your own finished spoon during the session.
The joy of spoon carving is that we don't need expensive tools, workshops and workbenches. 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.
You will learn safe grips and cutting techniques with both a straight and bent (hook) knife which are the two that we use to make the spoon.
The session runs from 1pm - 4pm
The venue is :

All tools and materials supplied
