Saturday 19 & Sunday 20 February, 10am-4pm, Complete Spooncarving Course @ Lincoln University

This class with Douglas Horrell of Cleft Craft is held in two parts at our woodland workshop in the lovely Brandenburg Coppice, out at Lincoln University.

Vaccination requirement: Anyone 12 and over attending our workshops at any level of the traffic light system must be fully vaccinated. Please bring proof of vaccination (My Vaccine Pass), to show at the start of your workshop. More details about how we are creating a safe space for you in our workshops that are held within an open public setting can be found HERE.


Saturday 19 February 10am-4pm & Sunday 20 February, 10am-4pm

Come and learn the craft of spoon carving from log to finished spoon. In this complete class you’ll learn to split out billets of wood for carving and shape them with an axe. You’ll then carve your spoons to completion with knives, learning about safe techniques, spoon design and how to sharpen your tools along the way.


Taught over a weekend, this is a comprehensive class that's great for beginners who want the experience of carving spoons from scratch, or as a refresher for experienced carvers and people who have already attended Spooncarving 1 (beginners) or Spooncarving 2 (spoon blanks)


Please note: This workshop is  for adults and 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 what to bring, wear and how to find us nearer the workshop date.

Minimum numbers are required for the class to run.

Bookings are essential, non-refundable and non-transferable. We do, however, understand that things come up and try and accommodate people to the best of our ability. This can include moving people to another class or a refund - but please be aware that this is reliant on us filling the original spot. This will also incur a $5 admin fee.

This is because all of our pricing, and our efforts to keep costs as low as possible while still paying the tutors a fee commensurate with their experience and allowing them to cover the costs of living, is based on running these classes with a certain number of participants.

Management of COVID-19 risk:

As we wish to operate as safely as possible, and protect the health of our communities, Rekindle will be running vaccinate mandated workshops from the implementation of the traffic light system, at all levels of the traffic light system.



This means that from Covid-19 traffic light system confirmation, anyone 12 and over attending a workshop at Rekindle must be fully vaccinated.


Mask-wearing is also a requirement at Orange & Red at the Arts Centre, and strongly encouraged at Green. Please visit our COVID policy page for more details.



Participants who are unwell, or who are required to self-isolate, must not attend the workshop. Refunds will be given if participants need to miss the workshop in order to manage the risk of COVID-19, however we need to be advised of this as soon as possible, so that we can fill the space.


Refunds will not be given if participants arrive to the workshop unwell on the day, and they will be asked to leave. Refunds will not be given to unvaccinated persons arriving at the workshop on the day, and they will be asked to leave.

We are grateful to be able to offer this workshop in a partially subsidised manner because of support from Creative New Zealand.
