Where you'll be

Our butter spreader class will take place at our 1920’s storefront studio in North East Minneapolis. Our studio is where we carve all the spoons and bowls that we sell at markets. You’ll have access to all our freshly sharpened tools and fresh green wood. If the weather is nice, we might take class outside in the back garden.
