Interest in making wooden spoons has gone through the roof in recent years, and for good reason. It can be learnt and enjoyed by anyone and requires no previous experience. Carving spoons is an extremely satisfying and creative skill that requires a few simple tools and very little space to do it.
Give it a try, you won't regret it.
The venue for this one day course is in one of the very civilised, light, airey and warm yurts at Killhope Museum surrounded by enchanting woodland. The Killhope yurts are beautifully appointed, featuring wooden floors and wood burning stoves.
The course will be taught by Maurice Pyle who has been a full time professional woodsman and green woodworker for more than 20 years and has built up an enviable reputaion as a skilled and knowedgeable teacher. He will carefully guide you throught a range of grasps so you can remove wood accurately and safely with a range of carving knives. Tool sharpening and safety will also be covered.
