Learn basic woodcarving techniques through Spoon Carving!
The spoon, a simple, familiar object with concave and convex surfaces, provides a perfect introductory project to learn basic woodcarving. At it’s simplest a spoon is a straight stick with a shallow bowl at one end, however can be so elaborate that it provides a challenge to even the most experienced carvers.
While this class provides instruction on working with hand-tools to create a spoon (sloyd knife, hook knife, and gouge), you will also learn various methods on how to speed-up the spoon making process through the use of hand-saws and power-tools (for instance, say you want to start your own Spoon Caring business). Students will also learn various techniques on creating their own spoon “blank” working with a froe, splitting maul, hand saw & band-saw.
