Introduction to Spoon Carving

Spoon-Carving-Class-Vevang

Carvers Erik and Michele Vevang will introduce you to spoon carving in a relaxed setting with all supplies, including cut-resistant gloves, provided. You will start with a wooden blank and learn how to shape it into a spoon with a variety of carving strokes and then how to finish it. The wood used in this class is locally sourced, taken from fallen branches, tree trimmings, and trees that had to be felled.

This class is ideal for first-time carvers. The Vevangs have taken all the hewing and hacking out of the process and will start you at a place where you can comfortably complete the spoon during the workshop. Carving can be calming and relaxing, and with the Vevang's guidance, an opportunity to create an object that is both functional and beautiful.
This class is held at our East Lake St. store.  One 3-hour workshop, from 9 to 12p. $80
