Spoon Carving

Use traditional greenwood techniques to carve your own spoon. Learn about the form and function of a good spoon and how to make the most of the wood for strength and beauty.

The courses are held at the beautiful Footprint nr Windermere, in the Lake District.

The day will start at 9am and finish at 5pm.

Kettle always on the boil and unlimited biscuits! Bring your own lunch.

"I woke this morning fully expecting to spend the day spoon carving , sadly I had to attend work ………

I really enjoyed yesterday, the pace and style of teaching was perfect and the atmosphere great.

I consolidated some skills I already had and learnt some new ones also, it was great to handle other types of tools and share the experience with yourself and other spoon fans.

A brilliant course, well run in a superb setting, I’ll be looking to return at some point, good luck and many thanks."

“What made it special for me was the homely and personal nature of the day, superb tools and work areas in a beautiful setting"

I'd like to thank you for a lovely weekend! We all learnt a lot over the course of the two days; from instruction, observation and from being given space and time to try things for ourselves. Thank you.
