About the event
Green wood spoon making relies on the combination of easy-to-carve, freshly harvested wood, razor sharp tools, and steady, thoughtful technique. Students will be introduced to various tool handling techniques involved in transforming freshly harvested green wood into personal wooden spoons for use cooking, serving, and eating. The day will begin and end with demonstration, and the balance will be devoted to working with well prepared spoon blanks and the straight and bent knife, learning safe knife holds and carving techniques, exploring ways to hold the work, and drying/finishing/embelishments. Overall attention will be devoted to safe and attentive tool handling and practicing the basic techniques.
About Guest Instructor Andre Souligney:
Using freshly harvested green wood and traditional hand-tools, I make asymmetrical spoons and other kitchen utensils, bowls, milking stools and woodland work benches, shaving horses, chopping blocks, mallets, tool handles, and other interesting things. I love to learn, experiment, share and expand the joy of the craft with others I meet along the way. My partner Heather and I are raising our growing daughters here in the hills of Vermont, and I cherish the time, interest, and support each of them afford me to pursue my spoonderlust…
