Kuksa : Hand-Carved Cup


Create your own personal Kuksa through a variety of carving techniques. March 17, 10-3pm



A Kuksa, a wooden cup that has almost sacred status among traditional hikers, comes from a Nordic origin. Originally, kuksa were used by the Sami (Norway people) as a personal cup to help them eat or to gather berries. This multifunctional cup had to be durable and strong and usually fashioned from a burl.

During the course of this workshop students will be fashioning their own Kuksa from a combination of carving techniques.  Discussions will include tool options, wood choices and finishing techniques.
