Greenwood Carving Courses 2016

Learn to carve in small groups on fun, short courses. Courses make great presents; the memories and skills last long after the day itself.
In 2016 I am excited to be teaching for Greenwood Days, near Derby and the Woodland Skills Centre, North Wales. Please contact the venue directly to book.

If you are interested in arranging for me to teach a course for your own group please email me stevetomlin8[at]
Please note: you must be over 18 to attend these courses.

Spoon Carving

Spoon carving cours
Based over a weekend you will learn to carve your own spoons and other utensils from locally-sourced green wood. Suitable for beginners and spoon carvers wanting to progress.

Working together, we will build up skills over the two days making a variety of projects on the way. I have been carving spoons since 2003 and am recognised as one of the UK’s leading experts. Two days enables you to learn effective carving methods in a safe, relaxed environment and develop techniques to master the craft. You’ll go home with fantastic memories and the skills continue the craft on your own.
