Learn to carve wooden
spoons, using traditional skills and simple hand tools.
carving is one of the most accessible and enjoyable woodcrafts you can
experience. Using traditional tools to shape green [unseasoned] wood is
pleasure that is hard to match. The beauty of green wood lies in its ability to
be shaped easily as it is soft and easily worked with hand tools.
Stephen Ryan from Green Woodwork Ireland, will teach you the skills needed to
become a traditional spoon carver. Each participant will learn axe and knife
carving skills to produce their own spoon from locally sourced, freshly cut
wood. All tools and materials are supplied. No experience necessary. Due
to the use of sharp tools during the class, sturdy boots or shoes should be
worn. Please bring an overall or old shirt.
