Sunday 8 August, 3-5pm, Carve a spatula (beginners)

This class with Douglas Horrell is held at our Arts Centre workshop, which is located upstairs in the Boys’ High building at 28 Worcester Boulevard. 

An introduction to basic whittling and safe knife techniques for beginners. Design and make a simple spatula for your kitchen.

We provide all tools, but if you are interested in purchasing your own so that you can practice these skills at home - our tool buying advice is here for those interested and you can purchase tools from us online or from our workshop at The Arts Centre

Please note: This workshop is for adults and only suited to those who can work safely without direct supervision with very sharp hand tools. 

There are 8 places available in this workshop.

Minimum numbers are required for the class to run.

About your tutor

Douglas Horrell has been teaching with Rekindle since 2017 and specialises in hand-carved, functional items such as spoons and bowls, as well as having  an interest in chair-making and other greenwood traditions. He also has a growing interest in toolmaking - forging his own tools from high carbon steel. He hopes to offer locally-made carving tools to Rekindle students in the future. You can find him on Instagram and Facebook as @cleftcraft

 

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 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, and from Te Matatiki Toi Ora the Arts Centre.

Management of COVID-19 risk:

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.
