Spoon Carving Taster Session
This is a 3-hour long (11am – 2pm) beginner’s wooden spoon carving course based at my Norwich workshop. You will learn the basic skills required to make your own spoon from reclaimed or local green wood (a selection of both will be provided).
You will be able to take home your creation at the end of the course and will be given sandpaper and tips on caring for your item (e.g. applying waxes and finishes for a long-lasting product).
I will provide spoon blanks from an assortment of woods for you to choose from, including reclaimed hardwoods and locally harvested green timbers.
All tools will be provided for the students to use on the day. I will provide a selection of axes, carving knives, gouges, rasps and hand saws to trial and will give advice on purchasing your own tools after the course if you choose to invest further.
All students will take home their completed (or in-progress) spoon, along with some sandpaper for finishing and a small pot of sealing wax if desired.
A soup lunch and coffees, teas & biscuits will be provided on the day.
Due to the nature of working with axes, knives and other sharp tools, all students must be 18+ (or 16+ if accompanied by an adult).
