Service Description

Class Description: Melanie Abrantes will lead students in hand carving their own wooden 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 at a discounted rate to continue your spoon-making practice at home! Provided in class: Wood Spoon Blank Japanese Spoon Gouge Carving Knife Sandpaper and Wood Butter Carving Instructions Snacks and Drinks (Lunch Not Included)
