Spoon Carving Workshop
Experience level: Beginner
All tools and materials provided
In this workshop, students will learn all the skills required to produce their own unique wooden spoons. Classes begin with a discussion on types of wood, the tools we’ll be using during the workshop, and a general overview about various wood carving techniques.
After the students have the basic understanding required to carve a spoon, they will be led by Alma, the instructor, in using a spoon gouge to make the bowl of the spoon. This will be followed by designing the remaining elements of their spoon, which includes the handle and the top. When the design is completed, they’ll finalise the project using sandpaper and oils. At the end of the class students will have a one of a kind hand-made object that will last a lifetime.
No previous experience is necessary for this class, just a desire to learn and have a go!
