This spoon carving workshop will take place at Wrongs Covert Woodland Restoration Project in Lenwade, Norfolk.
This is a one day introductory workshop to green woodworking. You will learn about coppicing, how to handle green wood and traditional cleaving, sawing and whittling tools to make either a spoon or a mallet, and if you have time both. You will get to use a shave horse and a spoke shave to create the handle for your mallet and a bill hook to cleave your wood for whittling a spoon.
The process from start to finish is deeply satisfying, engaging and is very meditative. Working with hand tools in a woodland setting will transport you away from the stresses of your life and work routines. You will undoubtedly develop a deep respect for this craft and the role trees play in our lives.
The £95 fee includes lunch cooked over the fire and all materials and tools. Numbers are limited to 6. Bookings can be made on the website www.silverwoodstudio.co.uk
