Birch Box | Spoon Carving Workshop
Amy from Bow and Arrow will teach you how to carve a wooden spoon using a gouge and a carving knife.
Students will be provided a basswood spoon blank, carving knife, and a gouge. The workshop will start by discussing different types of wood, carving techniques and treatments. After discussing carving techniques and safety, Amy will demonstrate how to carve the bowl using a gouge. She will help you to design and whittle the handle to your own taste. Once the carving is complete you will sand and finish your spoon with a natural finish.
All the tools will be provided for the workshop. You will go home with your own finished spoon and an elevated sense of self-pride!
Provided tools and other items:
- Basswood or poplar spoon blank
- Spoon gouge
- Carving knife
- Spoon carving instructions to take home
- Natural finish (oil/wax)
Participants must be 16 years or older. If your youth is mature and wants to participate please email us.
