Join Lyndon Crossman and Doug Marsh for an afternoon of wooden spoon carving, an ancient timeless craft. Spoon carving is a sensorial process that connects you with your hands while providing an opportunity to be free from your mind. While working with your hands you will learn safe carving techniques and practices. You will also learn about different species of wood and their properties. The wood spoon requires the participant to learn to create complex shapes such as convex and concave surfaces. These basic shapes are the foundation of all sculpture.
You will use only a few tools and a piece of firewood or a wind fallen branch and leave with something you can use every day. You may bring your own piece of wood or wood will be provided. You will gain experience using various tools such as, rasps, hand saws, coping saw, wooden mallets, chisels, abrasives, chisel sharpening techniques, wood finishes. Through the use of the different tools, you will learn about the most common techniques for each one and some recommendations about the care and sharpening of these tools. This is the perfect intro class for sculptural woodworking. If you have any questions about this class, please contact Lyndon at firstname.lastname@example.org
