Woodshaping – Carve a Spoon from the log

No woodworking experience required.

Splitting a fresh cut log and carving it into a useful and beautiful spoon is a truly rewarding experience. In this class, students will  explore a variety of methods, both traditional and contemporary, by which to shape a chunk of wood into a spoon. Working  with traditional spoon carving tools (such as a hatchet, carving, knife, hand plane, and gouge,) as well as a few power tools, (such as the band saw and rotary carvers) we will learn to split, mill, rough-out, carve, scrape, and finish, as we reveal the spoon within each log. There is much to be learned from a fresh cut log, both about the material and about ourselves as makers.   

Cost of materials included. 

* Bring a bag lunch. 

Saturday & Sunday,  January 29 -30

Time: 10 am - 5 pm
