Spoon carving workshop in Wales

Spoon carving workshop

My craft course season is well underway for 2017 and this weekend I had a brilliant time teaching eight lovely people how to carve wooden spoons at the Woodland Skills Centre.

As always, we start out with freshly-cut, greenwood logs – birch and sycamore this time – and craft them into fabulous cooking and eating spoons with a cheeky butter spreader thrown in too for knife practise.

On a two day course like this there’s lots of time for beginners to develop the skills and try out more challenging carving techniques as well as learning how to sharpen the hook knives and axes. Thanks all, I had a brilliant time and look forward to seeing your future spoons.

    Throughly enjoyed the weekend. Learnt far more than I expected, not just about spoon carving but working with green wood. Thanks to an excellent tutor. Would highly recommend the skill centre in Bodfari.
