What you'll do

A hands on workshop, guests will learn how to hew a log into a spoon blank, then shape into a finished usable spoon / spreader using knives. The workshop is accessible for the beginner looking to learn the basics and get started or the advanced woodworker looking to hone their craft. I’ve been carving for several years now and I’m still learning every time I practice. Spoon carving is a wonderful creative activity anybody can do in their living room / studio with a few basic tools.
