Description: Let the wood guide you! In this one-day class, you’ll learn basic greenwood spoon-carving techniques, including selecting the best trees for carving, breaking-down logs into usable spoon blanks, and practicing the basic axe and knife skills needed for safe and efficient carving.
Using only three tools (axe, straight knife, and hook knife), you’ll begin carving your own wooden spoon; leaving with a few blisters on your hands, an appreciation for the therapeutic nature and addictive qualities of spoon carving, and the basic technique, confidence, and reference material needed to continue carving on your own. The small group format allows for safe and individualized instruction.
The materials fee includes greenwood spoon blanks for carving, a dedicated (socially distanced) workstation, use of carving tools, course materials, personalized instruction, coaching, and encouragement.
