This is a very special guest-taught workshop featuring instructor JoJo Wood, all the way from the UK! Most of our spoon classes use dry, commercially acquired wood. This class will be our first ever green wood spoon class, meaning you will be carving wood that was freshly cut from a tree. The skills you learn here can be taken with you to make utensils anywhere that trees grow.
This course is an introduction to all things axe, knife and spoon. No previous experience required. We will spend the day producing mountains of woodchips, learning to use these three simple tools, and creating a spoon for you to take home and use. A perfect first step for an absorbing hobby, and a great introduction to the world of spoon carving and working with green wood.
Having taught from the age of 18 and carved her whole life, JoJo Wood has developed a unique carving method, highlighting efficiency and technique. She spent her early years traveling the world with her father, meeting craftspeople and amassing woodwork skills and knowledge. She is now one of the UK’s leading spoon carvers, teaching and giving talks internationally. JoJo aims to inspire more women and younger people to get into woodworking, teaching that technique wins over physical strength every time.
