Careys Secret Garden
Learn all the skills and techniques needed to craft your own wooden spoon by hand, using just an axe & knife in this all-day workshop in the beautiful, natural backdrop of Carey’s Secret Garden.
Jack Fazey has been working with wood for over 10 years, carving spoons for about 8 years, and teaching for even longer. In his safe, competent hands you will be guided through the safe use of the axe, sloyd knife and crook knife, as well as shown how to select wood for carving, keep your tools sharp, and ultimately how to make some wonderful wooden spoons.
Suitable for absolute beginners as well as those who may already have some experience, rest assured you will be guided through each step slowly, thoroughly & enjoyably!
Participants can expect to finish the day with a brand new hobby to continue at home as well as a lovely wooden spoon or two.
All tools & wood provided
