Skill up in the new year by learning how to make one of the most versatile tools in the kitchen, the wooden spoon. In this hands-on workshop designer Melanie Abrantes will lead students in hand carving their own spoon using traditional Japanese tools and techniques.
The class will start with a discussion of different wood types, an explanation of the tools required, and an overview of the techniques used to cut wood. Once students have acquired a basic understanding, Melanie will lead them in carving the bowl of the spoon with the spoon gouge, then designing and whittling the handle and top of the spoon. When the final design has been reached, students will sand and finish their spoons with an all-natural finish. All tools will be provided to use during the workshop, with the option of purchasing the tools to continue your spoon making practice at home!
There is a minimum number of students required to run this class, so please sign up early. Workshop tickets include a 10% off coupon for purchases in SHED’s retail store the day of the event, perfect for stocking up on kitchen supplies to match your new spoon!
