Instructor: Erik Vevang

This workshop covers all aspects of green wood spoon carving, from splitting wood and axing, to spoon design, carving techniques, knife grips, safety, and finishing cuts. By the end of two days you will have all the knowledge you need to carve a spoon from log to finish cuts. Suitable for all levels of experience, including beginners. Some spoon carving experience is helpful but not necessary. All tools and wood will be provided for class, however, feel free to bring along wood you would like to work with, any previous spoons you have carved and any carving tools you own. Please wear comfy clothes that can get full of wood chips and sturdy closed toe shoes. If you’ve taken other spoon carving classes and want to learn more, this is the class for you.

Students will go home with several wooden spoons they have carved themselves, as well as the knowledge and confidence in axe, knife, and wood splitting to make it possible.
