Your tutor for this workshop will be Alan from Alien Spoons who has been teaching spoon carving
since 2015 and has taught over a thousand people how to carve safely and efficiently.

This workshop will focus on using wood carving knives and you will learn a variety of techniques that
make carving relatively easy on the body and get good results when making a spoon or other green
wood carved treen.

We will be using freshly felled birch from a local woodland that I manage sustainably and primarily
for wildlife. Spoons do not require a lot of wood and we will be using small diameter Roundwood
that does not create a lot of waste. You will start this workshop with a spoon blank that is roughly axed out to a spoon shape.

We will have a short lunch break halfway through the workshop so that people can stay focused. Picker's Bothy cafe is next door and serves a delicious range of lunches or you are welcome to bring a packed lunch.

At the end of the day you should have a spoon and feel confident enough to use the tools safely at
home if you would like to do more carving (most people do as it is a very calming and mindful
activity). Additional blanks and tools will be on sale for carving more spoons.


Tea, coffee and homemade cakes are included to keep your strength up!
