Introduction to Spoon Carving Course with Martin Damen

Venue, Timing, Cost

Sylva Foundation
Sunday, 26 March 2023
9am until 4.30pm.
One day Spoon Carving Course.

The aim of the one day Spoon Carving Course is to provide an introduction to the craft of spoon carving. While no prior experience is required, the Spoon Carving Day could be a follow-on course to the Knife Skills & Whittling Course or as a means to discover whether you want to take up spoon carving before doing a two-day course.

During the course students are first introduced to the tools used; an axe, carving knife and hook knife and are taught how to use each safely and efficiently. Students then make a simple spoon using basic techniques. During the day wood selection is discussed and the day ends with a session on sharpening the tools used.


The course will be held at:

Sylva Wood Centre
Little Wittenham Rd
Long Wittenham
OX14 4QT
