About the event

1-day beginner-level spoon carving workshop where you will:

· Make a beautiful spoon of your own to take home.
· Learn the steps and techniques used to carve a fresh piece of wood into a spoon using hand tools – no previous experience needed

You’ll not only learn a new skill to take away, but also your very own hand carved spoon to take home and use for your coffee grounds, take on your next hike or just to say ‘I made this!’.
Tutor Tom Sheehan will guide you through the steps and techniques used to carve a block of wood into a wooden spoon using a type of carving called whittling.
