    Introduction to Hand Carving Spoons

    Give a little whittle!

    Join us as we explore the craft of spoon carving. 

    With a focus on knife skills, technique, and hand/body awareness, participants will be supported through the comfort of working with very sharp tools.

    No experience carving is necessary. The potential for getting cut is high. Cut-resistant gloves  are not required, but may help with comfort. Basic hand-eye coordination is good, as well as hand strength (can you open that new jar of peanut butter?)

    Class is limited to 8 people to make sure there’s plenty of individual guidance and instruction.

    This is a single-session class on Saturday, February 18, 9a-12p

    Fee: $50 members, $70 non-members

    Instructor: Rick
