Over six sessions, Stephen Stockbridge will introduce you to the art of carving with an axe, a knife and a crook knife. By carving a spoon, you can focus on becoming familiar with the tools of the craft without the pressure of knowing what to carve. As you gain confidence with the tools, you begin to build a relationship with your small-scale carving and understand the subtle and addictive qualities of this new hobby. Participants will also explore the qualities of different greenwoods for carving and finishing techniques.
