What you'll do
Making spoons is a wonderful way to engage in both woodworking, and carving on a small scale. Easy to do, productive and fun there is something very satisfying about hand making a utilitarian object. No experience is necessary just a desire to have a go. Using traditional tools and a few easy power tools in this wooden spoon carving class, you will learn how to design, carve and hollow out the bowl of the spoon, shape the handle as well as sand and finish the piece. It’s a fun class and easy for anyone to learn. The best part is you get to leave the class with your very own custom creation. All supplies are included and will go home with you. This workshop is ideal for adults and also appropriate for kids (12+) if accompanied by an adult.
