WOODEN SPOON CARVING
One of the most satisfying things we can do as humans is make a useful tool with our own hands. Carving a wooden spoon can not only open a door for your child into a world of creativity and artistry but it will also your help kids to develop a cool new skill that they can be proud of. This awesome class will teach kids how to make a beautiful and useful wooden spoon out of a piece of Eastern red cedar.
In this class, we will cover:
How to split out a spoon blank from a larger piece of wood
Spoon carving techniques
Spoon finishing (sanding and applying the oil finish).
Knife safety and proper knife use techniques
By the end of this class, your child will be well on their way to transforming a piece of wood into a beautiful and unique product of their own creation. Each student will bring home the necessary knowledge and materials to complete a wooden spoon that they can use as a functional tool, admire as a piece of art, and of course be super proud of.
All materials will be provided. No prior experience in wood carving is necessary.
