What you will do
2 hour workshop
This workshop reveals the art of sharpening your hand tools, focussing on spoon carving tools including knives, crook knives and carving axes. You will learn to sharpen tools that we provide, or you can bring along your own tools that need sharpening. Stephen, your tutor, has been carving for over 30 years and has a wealth of experience and knowledge in this field. You will be supported throughout and he will be on hand with advice on the best kind of tools to buy. There will also be the opportunity to buy some on the night.

About your host, Creative nature HQ
Creative nature HQ is a collective of artists, makers and designers who believe that we are all inherently creative. It is their job as teachers to nurture and reveal these qualities in every one we teach. Creative nature HQ have defined five disciplines that encompass all the skills of our group: to draw, carve, build, weave and cast.
You can access these workshops in different studios around south London. Their main location is Creative Nature HQ , East Greenwich, that specialises in wood carving, weaving and construction on a monumental scale. We love to teach, to give people the confidence to use tools and with that a confidence grows and a world of making opens up before them.
Stephen Stockbridge is the director of Creative nature HQ, from this tranquil making space Stephen shares his passion for making with natural materials. Slowing down, being in the moment and fully engaged with what you are doing is the foundation of everything that happens here.
Come join the club, learn, live and make! Looking forward to meeting you.
Please wear warm clothing and bring an apron if you can. There is plenty of free parking on site and tea and biscuits too.
