Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers – Activity with a difference

The Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers is a premier flower show, Grand Parade Food and Wine event plus a whole range of other things to do!

The dates of the Carnival is September 1-30 – yes it is now a whole month of what’s on activities!

Why not add something else to the what’s on list and participate in a craft that has been around for hundreds of years!

Learn to hand carve a wonderful wooden spoon!

A wooden spoon is more than a functional tool, it can also be  a work of art, a sculpture that reflects the makers input and the response of the wood.

Creating a spoon takes an element from our natural environment and through the relationship of the inherent properties of the piece of wood and the skill of maker into a negotiated result. You cannot argue with the wood!
