Carving Spoons & Spatulas

This two day workshop covers carving techniques and safe tool use, aiming to send you home with your own hand carved wooden spoon, spatula and mallet.

Why carve a spoon? Aside from the obvious need for a tool to transport food from pot or plate to mouth, carving a spoon teaches us about wood types and the different qualities they have.

It teaches us how to harvest, split and season wood and of course, a whole host of the most universally important carving grips and techniques that will enable you to successfully carve round timber using just hand tools.  Also, it teaches us to plan and think several steps ahead in order to achieve an end goal.

The working day will begin at 9am sharp and we’ll down tools at 5pm daily (although please be prepared to stay on a bit later if needed).

If you wish to stay locally, the nearest villages to our location are Tisbury, Hindon & Chicklade. If you would like to camp over in the woods, please mention this when you book.

This workshop is self catered. Please bring enough food for the duration. Hot drinks, fruit and snacks are available all day. Our woodland kitchen has plenty of robust pots and pans for cooking over the campfire, as well as cool boxes and secure containers to store your food. Small, personal camp fires are absolutely fine and fire wood is plentiful and free.


If you've already carved your own spoon, take a look at the Carving a Wooden Cup Workshop, a further two days over the weekend of 19th & 20th October focusing on carving Scandinavian style Kuksa from green wood. Make the whole set!
