Spoon Carving with
I am a coppice worker with eighteen years of experience working in several woods in Gloucestershire. I teach green woodworking at the GL11 Community Hub in Cam and have been a spoon carving tutor for the last six years. I feel really blessed to be able to work in such a beautiful environment. Though perhaps less so when the rain is dripping down my neck! It is a personal joy to pass on my skills to other people. There is a growing spoon carving community in the UK. It is a wonderful hobby whether you carve alone in the woods or in the company of like-minded souls. However you are placed: come to the woods, breathe deeply and create something beautiful.
Spoon Making in a Day!
Beginners spoon carving courses.
I run a course once a month that is suitable for beginners. In the winter we will be at Sherston Village Hall and in the summer at Westonbirt Arboretum in the Silk Wood Barn. I provide tools and raw materials. You start with a log of wood and go home with a spoon. The cost is £75 for the day and includes tea, coffee and cake. You bring your own lunch.
Not able to travel to me? Then why not have a get together at your own home, or village hall, for you and your friends. Contact me for details.
