Tue, 15/05/2018 - 10:00am - 3:00pm

Learn a traditional rural craft when carving your own wooden spoon from locally sourced green wood.  The techniques you will use stem back hundreds of years.  First you will be taught how to safely use a variety of the hand tools before learning to split wood and develop knife and chisel skills. You will then create your own wooden spoon that can be used in your home and even passed down as a family heirloom. 

Join us in our new outdoor classroom at Nower Wood specially designed for rural craft classes like this.
