About the Event

Carve a spoon - two hour taster workshop at the Sydney Timber Tools & Artisan Show. Friday afternoon workshop.

Wondering why everyone is carving spoons? Want to have a go? Well come along to the Sydney Timber Tools & Artisan Show and learn how to magic your own spoon from a tree!

This two hour taster workshop is a condensed version of our signature 'Carve a Spoon from a Tree' one day workshop. In this workshop you will start from an axed out blank and learn how to safely and effectively use a carving knife and hook knife to turn it into a beautiful and functional spoon.

Absolutely no experience is needed, and we provide all the wood and gear you need (we'll also be selling tools if you find yourself getting the spoon carving bug...many do!).

Minimum age: 16.

The Timber Tools & Artisan Show (formerly the Timber and Working with Wood Show) is a fantastic event held at the Rosehill Racecourse. The workshop will be held inside, away from the cold and while you are there you can experience some of the amazing arts and crafts on offer at the show.
