This workshop is based in the beautiful Brandenburg Coppice, a unique woodland on the Lincoln University campus, and is taught by Douglas Horrell of Cleft Craft.
Learn how to make blanks from a log for spoon-carving.
Open to our previous beginner spoon carvers who already have their own carving tools (so that you can practice these skills at home - our tool buying advice is here for those interested), this workshop will teach keen spoon-carvers how to start from scratch - using a hatchet to do the splitting out and rough shaping of their spoons.
You'll learn how to use one of the most fun and versatile tools, as well as safe axe technique and how to set up and sharpen a hatchet for carving and shaping wood. You'll also make several spoon blanks for carving.
Please note: This workshop is only suited to those who can work safely without direct supervision with very sharp hand tools.
After you’ve booked, we’ll send you information re the workshop and how to find us nearer the workshop date.
Bookings are essential and non-refundable.
