Let the wood guide you!

In this 3-hr workshop, you’ll learn basic spoon-carving techniques including selecting the best trees for greenwood spoon carving, breaking-down logs and branches into usable spoon blanks, along with practicing the basic axe and knife skills needed for safe and efficient carving.

Using only three tools (axe, straight knife, and hook knife), you'll begin carving your own wooden spoon; leaving with a few blisters on your hands, an appreciation for the therapeutic nature and addictive qualities of spoon carving, and the basic technique, confidence, and reference material needed to continue carving on your own.

Class fee includes greenwood spoon blanks for carving, a dedicated (socially distanced) work station (eg carving block/log & chair), use of carving tools, course materials, personalized instruction, coaching, and encouragement.

This class is held in the heart of historic downtown Galena at The Spoon Carver Cottage, 306 South Prospect Street, Galena, IL 61036. Ample street parking is available directly in front of the cottage.
