Spoon Carving at The Husbandry School
Liddy Ball, Bickington, Devon, TQ12 6NZ
This is a beginners class, no experience in using wood, knives and axes is necessary. If you have some experience then this will help you progress faster. Beginners or those with little experience would benefit from attending the Wild Wood Whittling course. Minimum age for this course is 16.
We use spoons every day and usually give them little thought. They are wonderful examples of 3D design and art meeting function, with their almost infinite variety of shapes and form. People have carved wooden spoons since we began working wood, a tradition that is still alive today with more and more people taking up this practical and rewarding pastime.
Spoons come in all shapes and sizes: eating, serving, cooking, sculptural, and love-spoons. This workshop will concentrate on spoons for eating with, and smaller serving spoons. Depending on your ability, you will take home at least one spoon and the techniques used in making, so you can continue making spoons at home. Spoon carving tools will be on sale at the workshop.
