Learn how to carve a wooden spoon by attending this small group one day workshop.

Held in Toowoomba, (an easy 1.5 hr drive from Brisbane) the workshop covers:

  • Types of wood
  • Sourcing wood and things to consider
  • How to get the best spoon from wood
  • Concepts of spoon design
  • Demonstration of axe work
  • Different grips, cutting stokes and other aspects while working on your own spoon
  • Dealing with issues of green wood carving while working the wood
  • Knives and knife maintenance
  • Finishing coatings

We take a break for morning tea and afternoon tea (supplied) and lunch (bring your own).

At the end of the day you will have an eating spoon, or a cooking spoon or a serving  spoon that is very close to completion for you to take home.

You can purchase knives used on the day at cost price.

Workshops run from 9-4 or 9.30-4.30 if participants are traveling to attend.

Current class sizes are limited to two so as to allow maximum interaction.
