Over this duration of this five week course, you will be taught the principles of spoon carving, safety techniques and correct tool use. The course uses axes, knives & crook knives, and we will cover how to make bespoke handmade spoons crafted by yourself to take home and enjoy.

Teaching you all the skills required to carve a spoon, you will learn:

  • About the properties of different woods
  • Splitting techniques to split locally sourced unseasoned wood straight from the log (using a tool called a froe)
  • How to use an axe to carve yourself a spoon blank (the rough cut spoon shape)
  • How to use a variety of knife grips and carving techniques using crook knives (spoon knives) and fixed blade knives
  • How to sharpen your carving tools so you have the skills to carry on this fascinating hobby
