Day Breaks Glass Studio, 285 Main St, Bethel, VT 05032, USA


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…

Day Breaks Glass Studio is located in downtown Bethel, Vermont. There are lunch options on the block including, The Village Sandwich Shop and Cockadoodle Pizza. Babe's Bar opens at 2pm
