It’s a wonderful feeling to cook and eat with utensils you’ve made yourself!
In this introductory carving class, led by Ryan Johnson, learn to make beautiful handmade wooden spoons from wood using a knife, axe, saw, and gouge. We’ll discuss which tree species we recommend using and why, where to find them, and how to harvest them sustainably. Then, we will section the logs into billets so we can begin carving. Each step of the process, you’ll follow along with the instructor to make your own spoon to take home. You’ll also get to meet other carvers in the community and socialize while we carve. You might even get to hear a good story or two! Tools and materials will be provided (please see the materials fee). If you have tools or woods of your own you would like to use, you are welcome to bring those along too! Please bring water and any snacks you may want during the class.
Class will be held mostly outdoors, dress warmly
Class fee , $35 with additional $10 materials fee payable at time of class, includes woods, templates, and tools for the class.

If you have any questions about the materials or tools, or what the flow of the class will be like, please reach out to the instructor at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you there!
