Spoon carving workshop with Thomas Bickerdike
The Barn Studio, Stonehouse, Vicarage Lane, Potten End, Berkhamsted HP4 2QZ
Thomas will guide you through this relaxed fun workshop as you learn to carve from a log to spoon in this day long workshop. At the end of the day you will take away your very own carved spoon, along with the skills to make many more. The course covers safe knife working techniques in a safe relaxed environment.
The day starts with an introduction & coffee before we move onto the practical work.
Demonstration on splitting timber and safe axe and knife cuts.
Supervision and guidance as we get started on carving our spoons.
Break for a light lunch before it’s back to work carving our spoons
Thomas has found that he gets great satisfaction by passing on the skills he has learnt especially in the green woodworking, as this requires very little in the way of tools and machinery.
It’s lovely to unlock the potential within someone to make a simple utilitarian item from simple hand tools and even better to watch it happen.
£70 plus £15 materials charge on the day. Chaps are especially welcome 🙂
