Whittling wooden spoons is a new workshop at the Blacksmith Shop Crafts. My degree is in designing and making furniture but I have never whittled a spoon. I have made a dining table and several chairs and benches but this will be my first try of carving a spoon. Hope you find this traditional greenwood craft as fascinating as I do.
Dave Atkin from Woodwyrm is coming to tutor this half day workshop. We will be using axes, carving tools and knives to form the shape of our spoon. You have to be comfortable about your ability to use tools safely. Dave will talk us through handling tools according to heath and safety guidelines.
We will only be able to take three people for this workshop to ensure that you will receive full attention from Dave and make your spoon successfully.
