intermediate - intro to spoon carving

PriceFrom $200.00

In this class we will cover an introduction to spoon carving.  We'll briefly talk about tools, sourcing materials, axe work, and design.  Then we'll dive in and carve a cooking spoon from a prepared blank, learning safe, effective knife grips for both straight and hook knives.  We'll wrap up with a discussion on finishing touches, decoration possibilities, and how to continue in the craft.


Class consists of two sessions no more than a week apart, lasting 2 hours each.  We will schedule them at a mutually agreeable time and they take place at my shop in Newton.


Some prior carving, woodworking, or hand craft experience will make this more enjoyable.  Conside my beginning class carving a cheese knfe if you're just beginning.  


All materials and use of loaner tools included; however, having your own knives will help you continue in the craft.  I can make recommendations on what and where to buy; the total cost is currently around $50. 


18+; 16+ with an accompanying adult
