The Crew…minus outdoor educators Peter & Julie


March 6, 2016 Spoon Carving Class with Mark Angelini.

Another Dream Come True !  Learning from Mark… practicing the use of a hatchet, straight knife and hooked knife to a carve spoon….while hanging out in the Red Shed (pole barn)  with the cozy Rocket Stove Heated Bench !   Oh Yeah ! 🙂

Our youngest participant was Forest, age 8, who has actually been carving spoons for a while … more than most of the folks in the group.

FYI   Mark Angeleni  will also be leading a Weekend Spoon Carving Workshop this year at the Blooming Valley Retreat, hosted by Ken Tait who was also a participant (upper rt of group photo). What a fabulous way to take some time to learn a practical nature skill in a beautiful setting with a fun and experienced teacher.

Mark is a delightful teacher, as he shares the skills he has learned carving 1200 spoons !
