Spoon Carving course

Spoons, by Paul Stead
Have a go at carving a spoon from green wood – for yourself or as a present. Please book ahead via Eventbrite.

The workshop, led by Paul Stead of Apple Tree Greenwood, will cover selection of wood suitable for spoons, carving tool use and safety, carving techniques and spoon finishing (seasoning and treatment). The aim is for all attendees to leave with a completed spoon ready for the finishing stage by the end of the day. All participants will also be given handouts including full written instructions and photographs to help you replicate the work after the course. The small group work will be informal and a chance to make friends amongst fellow green woodworkers. No prior experience or tools are required, though feel free to bring your own if you have them.
