Improving your Spoon Carving- private course

Improve your spoons, learn safe and effective tool techniques and explore the nuances of spoon design.
£250 pp
What happens in this class?

This course is for people who've carved spoons from wood before, a few or many. Students and tutors will all bring our spoons along for show and tell, and you to develop your designs and technique. Whether you struggle making a crank in your spoons, want to improve your knife finish, practice your axe technique to make better spoon blanks, try making scoops and ladles, or just want to stop making spoons that all look the same, this course will help you get there.

This is a private course that can be booked for up to 4 people.

Your Teacher

London Green Wood is cooperative of woodworkers practising rural crafts in the city. Based at Hackney City Farm, we work with green wood straight from the log and hand tools. All the wood we use has been felled locally.
