Greenwood Cooking Spoon Carving

Greenwood Cooking Spoon Carving

About this workshop

Want to discover the fascinating craft of spoon carving? Join Eli Beke of Wedge and Edge Woodcraft and learn the basics of sharpening tools, carving with an axe and carving safely with small hand tools.

In this full-day workshop, we will be splitting a log of wood into a spoon-sized billet and then working with hand tools such as an axe, a hook knife, a straight carving knife and a gouge to learn the skills to carve a cooking spoon from a fresh piece of green wood.

You will learn how to coax the spoon you design or template from the green timber, chip by chip, with expert teaching from your spoon carving teacher Eli. There will be plenty of time to ask questions and perfect the basics of this craft so that you can go on to carve more!

By the end of this workshop, you will have your own hand-carved cooking spoon ready to take home.
