JULY 17 // GREEN WOOD SPOON CARVING

160.00

11A - 5P

This workshop takes place in Sierraville, CA.

From tree to spoon, we will be working with freshly harvested greenwood (wood that is still wet) from California. We will discuss what to look for when selecting wood, tips for spoon design, and how to carve with confidence. Learn to safely use an axe, sloyd knife, and hook knife, with emphasis on technique and efficient carving. Then design and carve your own wooden spoon from freshly cut wood using only hand tools and your creativity. There may be time to complete both a spoon and butter knife. No carving experience needed.

This course is great for continuing and beginning spoon carvers. We will touch on purchasing appropriate tools, sharpening, and sourcing wood. We hope to spark interest in carving and related crafts.  

We recommend arriving a half hour ahead of time to become acquainted with the site and to settle in.

A gluten free pizza lunch with be provided with consideration of all dietary needs. Drinks will also be available during breaks. Feel free to bring any snacks or drinks to share.

We do not currently provide overnight accommodations.
