Spoon Carving – One Day Introduction

8 February

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until 8th February, 2020

£80

Wooden spoons have been carved for thousands of years and, for most of the population, continued as an eating utensil until relatively recently. ‘Spoon’ was originally an Anglo-Saxon word that meant ‘a chip of wood’.

Spoon carving requires only a few tools and within hours you can create a unique and practical item from a wooden log! On this 1 day introductory course you will begin by learning how to cleave the wood and use an axe to produce your spoon blank. The rest of the day will be spent using a sloyd knife and a hook knife to carve and shape your individual spoon.
