Warning- Spoon Carving is Addictive!!
Welcome to a creative day of mindfulness. Spend the day with us in our small studio in Cygnet, Tasmania learning to make a wooden spoon from scratch. The workshop runs from 10- 3/4pm, with a maximum of four people per workshop. Dates and times of workshops will be negotiated once you have a ticket- if you are after a specific day please ring to check if it is available BEFORE buying a ticket.
We have many workshops to choose from:
1)THE AXE- Carve a spoon from a piece of 'green wood'. Use traditional hand tools such as the froe, carving axe, drawknife, hook knife and sloyd knife. The ultimate spoon carving experience.
