Join Vic Phillips of SingleMaltTeapot and discover the creative wonders of hand carving a wooden utensil.
During the workshop you’ll discover:
- How to work with a natural material
- The cutting methods involved and how best to apply them
- How to beautifully finish to your hand carved spoon
As you are guided through the process you’ll discover the meditative, enriching nature of working with something that has grown over time and will head home with the next part in that story, your very own, hand carved wooden spoon.
