SPOON CARVING ~ a skill that lasts a life-time!
Wednesday April 17, 2024   REGISTER TO SAVE YOUR PLACE.
Note Early-Bird & Bring A Friend Discounts!

Discover the JOY of CARVING! Learn the basics of whittling that can be applied to a variety of  practical and artistic projects!

We will be carving in the cozy Strawbale Studio with a woodstove. (see photo below) In this class we will do skill-building on a simple project….a wooden spreader knife, or chop sticks. Get in the flow. Learn skill and confidence. . . then try out a basic spoon !  Add details & flair as you wish!

Learn safe knife carving techniques and tools.  The basic tool will be a sloyd knife and a hook knife. And you will also learn how to use a hatchet, shaving horse and draw shave .. which can assist the carving done with the knife. Try out some high quality tools to see what you like. At the end of the day, you will have several projects carved to take home.

All materials provided.

Spoon Carving 202, to be offered in the future, will teach techniques for making a more complex spoon


Bring a lunch & snack for yourself, water.

Bring a good hatchet if you have one, carving knives if you have them. If you are in the mood, bring some treats to share. (optional!)

Covid considerations. We will be following current covid guidelines. Masking optional indoors & out. If this doesn’t fit for you, look forward to a future spoon carving class in 2023, when things may have changed.

I look forward to spending the day with you and others and the natural world!

Instructor: Deanne Bednar – carving for about 10 years. Took classes from Kiko Denser and Mark Angelini.
