About the event
Come learn to carve a spoon! This class will start with safety and knife grip instruction as well as a demonstration of roughing out spoon blanks with an axe. Students will be able to practice on some small scraps of birch before beginning to carve their own cooking spoon.
This class is taught by Green Woodworker Joel Paul of 13 Stars Design in Stratham, NH who uses traditional tools to make chairs, bowls, spoons, and other wooden objects that recall a bygone age. A particular focus is hand carved spoons, which are the gateway to green woodworking and can be made using just a few special tools - the carving axe, straight knife and curved spoon knife. Keeping the craft tradition alive and fostering a mentality of respect for our natural environment is his ultimate goal.
Limited to 8 participants
