An introduction to spoon carving, working with green wood, a knife and an axe.
This regular class in spoon carving introduces you to the art of carving with an axe, a knife and a crook knife. By carving a spoon, you can focus on becoming familiar with the tools of the craft without the pressure of knowing what to carve. As you gain confidence with the tools, you begin to build a relationship with your small scale carving and understand the subtle and addictive qualities of this new hobby.
We will use green wood, freshly cut with a high moisture content. This is a beautiful and easy way to carve wood.
You are supported through the whole process and encouraged to explore carving in your own way and at your own pace. This is an exercise in slowing down and settling your attention.
All tools and materials are supplied and at the end of the session you will have your first carving started.
You may select any date and time to book. After your booking is made, we will get back to you to confirm availability and with a payment link. Enjoy!
We have set some safety measures and recommendations in response to the current COVID-19 outbreak.
