Spoon Carving Workshop – with wood fired pizza lunch

26 June @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm BST


Join us for some rustic creativity in our new outdoor classroom which is set in the beautiful Toolerstone gardens. Carving wooden spoons with traditional tools is a wonderful hobby that has become hugely popular recently. Turning a tree into your own practical and unique wooden spoon using an axe and special carving knives is inspiring, engaging and addictive! No experience is needed as you will learn step-by-step in a safe and fun environment with our tutor, Steve Tomlin.

A bit more detail

Starting with making a unique cooking spoon, you’ll learn how to use an axe and knives to shape wood safely and efficiently. This workshop will take you through the whole process of turning fresh wood into spoons and give you the confidence to carry on at home. Steve will also be selling wood carving tool kits should you wish to continue with your new found love of working with wood. 

   Home made wood fired pizza will be served for lunch
