Detaljer

Spoon carving has quickly become one of the most sought after green woodworking projects in the world today, and rightfully so. Many folks find “their flow” by chasing the ideal design; the design that feels, smells, and looks “almost” perfect. This state of flow becomes addictive and that intense focus begins to filter into other areas of daily life. This class is both a time to breath out, as much as it is time to breath-in.

The focus of this course is on learning how to safely execute about a dozen different carving grips that come from the Swedish Sloyd tradition. The first day is spent learning the grips and practicing on a “try stick”. Students will put the new grips to use in carving a simple butter spreader. The second day will begin with a review of the grips learned the day before and then be spent carving previously prepared spoon blanks. Topics ranging from wood selection and harvest, tool sharpening, ax work, and spoon design get discussed and demonstrated throughout the class, but the focus is always on learning the safe practice of fundamental knife carving grips.

At the end of the weekend, with many skills mastered, one finds they can confidently begin their journey chasing that ideal design in the mind-centering practice of Sloyd Spoon Carving.
