Stoodleigh, Tiverton EX16 9PJ, UK


About the event

Under the expert guidance of Tom Hepworth you will learn all the core techniques of carving fresh wood with a whittling knife, using these to shape your spoon from a blank, before hollowing the bowl with a spoon knife. Most importantly Tom will teach you all you need to work safely, meaning you can continue practicing and learning at home with confidence. Finally we will cover the basics of knife sharpening - an essential component for those wanting to get started in the craft.

This forms a perfect introduction for anyone interested in woodwork, or can simply be a relaxing and therapeutic way to spend a few hours in a beautiful place!
