During this Whittling and Woodcraft course, you will learn carving techniques and ultimately create a spoon and other useful objects; butter knives and spatulas to take home. You will be guided along the woodland trail, where you will learn to identify specific trees and understand which are good for these projects.
Working in this lovely woodland setting, centred around a campfire, you will spend the day learning to create a range of wooden utensils, the centre piece being a spoon. Whether you would like a dessert, serving or salad spoon, the choice and creativity will be all yours – David will be there to guide you throughout the day.
David’s (whittling and) woodcraft course was excellent. We got to carve various items like a butter knife and a spoon. Had an excellent lunch cooked over the fire and enjoyed the small group atmosphere. David’s knowledge of tree Identification was very interesting. A most enjoyable day. Thanks David
We’ll be covering the safe and effective use of a Bushcraft knife and saw, the principal tools needed to make the craft items, then you’ll be of into the woods to be shown how to gather and harvest the materials you need.
Throughout the day, you will be introduced to new techniques and provided with tips and guidance.
The kettle will be on the go, gently boiling over the campfire, so you will be able to stop for coffee and teas throughout the day. We will also be stopping for a light lunch cooked over the campfire.
Excellent day had in the woods. David is so knowledgeable and eager to share that knowledge. I was confident enough, after the day, that when I saw a patch of wild garlic and jack of the hedge was able to show them off to my family! Loved the spoon carving and have now spent the last few hours looking at crook knives and thinking about carving some more spoons! Would thoroughly recommend.
