Spooncarving Workshop at Knoll Farm

$125

Spend the day learning to carve your own wooden spoon & about woodworking with artist, writer and visionary Peter Forbes and designer, builder & master-craftsman Greg Ryan.

At Knoll Farm and in places as far away as Alaska and Guatemala, Peter has used spooncarving as a method for bringing diverse groups together and for helping people to access their creativity.  In this workshop you will learn to design, carve, and finish yourown hardwood spoon.  A shaving horse is a very useful combination vice and workbench that has been a mainstay of woodworkers for hundreds of years.  We’ll explore different types of shaving horses and the tools used with them, including draw knives and spokeshaves.  Simple plans will be provided.  Previous woodworking experience is helpful but not necessary.
