Spoon carving for beginners

Join local carver of spoons, Ellie Morgan, who will guide you through the process of carving your very own cooking spoon

About this event

A half day workshop where you’ll learn how to carve a spoon from locally sourced wood. You’ll find yourself lost in a world of wood chips and the beautiful facets of the natural product as you’re taken through the spoon carving process from beginning to end. Starting with a wooden blank, you’ll learn safe knife techniques, the architecture of a spoon, types of wood and finishing processes, and by the end you’ll have your very own cooking spoon to take home.

The workshop is suitable for complete beginners and no experience is assumed. As spoon carving requires hand strength, if you have any loss of hand strength or manual dexterity this might not be the craft for you. We’ll be using sharp knives, so the workshop is for over 18s only. All materials and tools will be supplied. Please dress appropriately in old clothes.

COVID SAFETY: We will do all we can to make this event Covid safe, including providing hand sanitiser. However, we ask attendees to take a lateral flow test before attending, respect each other’s space and wear a face covering.

The workshop will take place at Vine Road Recreation Ground in the Pavilion.
