Saturday 11 September, 10am-3pm, Chopping block and mallet at Lincoln

This class with Greg Quinn is held at our woodland workshop in the lovely Brandenburg Coppice, out at Lincoln University.

This five-hour workshop is suitable for participants with an interest in spoon-carving who would like to make and own their own chopping block and mallet.

Please bring your own gloves, sturdy footwear, drinking water and lunch.


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.

There are 6 places available in this workshop.

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.

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