We are so happy to have Alex Yerks here for our Necessary Traditions Festival, all the way from Upstate New York. (Actually we fixed the festival dates around Alex as he happens to be teaching in Australia Spoonjam just before, so huge thanks for that Mr Jeff Spoonsmith!)
Alex has been carving professionally with axe and knife for most of a decade, and we adore both the objects he carves, and the fact he dedicates his life to his craft. He is often on the road teaching, and continues to inspire many with his unique and ever-developing practice. You’ll get to watch Alex demonstrate at the festival on the Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th November 2018.
The 2 day spoon-carving workshop gives a unique opportunity to build new spoon-carving skills, Alex's spoons are so stunning!
The workshop will run from 10am until 4pm on Tues 13 & Wed 14 November 2018, at the beautiful Brandenburg Coppice at Lincoln University - a unique woodland setting.
Please note: The cost of this workshop is being subsidised by Rekindle to reduce the cost involved to you. We want this amazing opportunity to be as accessible as it can be, whilst ensuring Alex is paid for his time & knowledge. The reason Rekindle is subsidising this workshop in this way is because our mission is to create opportunities for resourcefulness, and so we believe in investing in your learning, and in ensuring skilled resourceful craftspeople like Alex are enabled to do their important mahi.
This is a workshop suited for adults only, no children please. Bookings are essential and non-refundable.
Huge thanks to the Arts Centre for supporting the festival and this workshop
Thanks to Creative New Zealand for helping us bring Alex here for the festival.
