Day 1 of 3
Carve a spoon by hand (with no power tools) from local green wood. Attendees will be guided on a journey from log to spoon, beginning with design and functionality, moving into axe and knife safety, and continuing with traditional hand carving techniques. The class will conclude with explorations and experimentations in decorating wood including chip carving and painting. Participants will leave with beautiful completed, useful objects. All levels of woodworking proficiency are welcome. Learn the concepts behind traditional woodworking methodologies and design approaches from the past to inspire the future.
