Course Provider: Cotswolds Conservation Board
Spend a day learning about the age old craft of green woodworking...and make you own spoon in the process!

Course description: 

Spoon carving is a fantastic way to learn the basics of green wood carving. At the end of the day you will have made your own spoon to use and show your friends.

The day starts with a single fresh log. You will cleave it down, use an axe to create the shape and then finish with various knives to smooth and perfect your spoon. There is plenty of opportunity to tap into your imagination and put your own personal design onto the spoon.

This is a wonderful way to learn a skill that has been past down through generations of wood workers and get back to nature.

What do you need to know: No prior experience required. This course is ideal for those who have very limited knowledge of green woodwork and want to learn more!

What to bring on the day: All tools and materials will be provided, although you are welcome to bring your own. All you need to bring is appropriate clothing footwear and a packed lunch.
